The Mississippi Student Information System (MSIS) was created to comply with the Performance Based Accreditation Model established by the Education Reform Act of 1982. This creation was strengthened by further legislation in 1994. This legislation placed an emphasis on the accurate reporting of student attendance and personnel at the school level – it required that there be no more summary data sent to the State Department of Education. MSIS was created to capture the data necessary to comply with state legislation and federal reporting requirements.

MSIS provides for the electronic collection and storage of comprehensive, detailed data about teachers, administrators, students (PreK 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.


Legacy System

Beginning July 8, 2024, the legacy MSIS system will only be accessible for the following 23-24 school year data collections:

  • ACT and WorkKeys (available July 10, due July 24)
  • Good Cause Exemptions (due August 30)
  • Graduates, Dropouts, and Promotions (due August 30)
  • Summer School (SSD) file (due September 30)

Reports will also remain accessible until all data from the 23-24 school year has been transferred to the new system.

Districts can refer to the legacy Student Data Training Manual for more information about completing these data collections.
