The Pennsylvania Information Management System (PIMS) is a statewide longitudinal data system for the collection and reporting of unit-level educational data.

PIMS was developed with the purpose of:

  • Allowing the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) to meet federal and state reporting requirements
  • Streamlining the reporting processes from educational institutions to PDE and the U.S. Department of Education
  • Reporting timely and accurate education data through standardized and ad hoc reporting capabilities
  • Improving educational decision-making through the use of high quality data and decision support tools
  • Providing longitudinal data on educational progress over time
