Core School Applications maintains the MDE applications (MSIS, TIMS & ELMS). We support the MDE vision “To create a world-class educational system that gives students the knowledge and skills to be successful in college and the workforce, and to flourish as parents and citizens.” Our goal is to increase availability of quality data to drive decisions to improve student outcomes. We provide technical support to the districts, schools and university personnel.
MS Student Information System (MSIS)
MSIS provides for the electronic collection and storage of comprehensive detailed data about teachers, administrators, students (Pre-K to 12) and school board members. MSIS also allows for the electronic transfer of student records from one school district to another, thus offering a unique student tracking system. The purpose of this project is to provide an efficient means in which to:
- Support the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) performance-based accreditation model
- Support education funding programs
- Provide timely and accurate reporting of education data (schedules, attendance, grades, transportation, discipline, Vocational and Special Education) to meet state and federal requirements
- Allow for student tracking across the state to determine student mobility trends and to assist in the reduction of the drop-out rate within the state
