Removal of 2017-2018 School Year Data in MSDS

If you wish to retain any data from the Fall 2017 General, Spring 2018 General, EOY 2018 General, Fall 2017 Early Childhood, Spring 2018 Early Childhood, EOP 2018 Early Childhood, 2017-18 Teacher Student Data Link, 2017-18 Early Roster, and 2017-18 Student Record Maintenance Collections, be sure to download and save your collections and reports by June 28, 2019. Please remember that these files contain confidential information and must be saved in a secure location on your local system. After the data are removed from the staging area, it is not possible for CEPI to re-create your data submission based on the data stored in our system. This will be your final chance to retain these files.


CEPI will remove all 2017-18 school year data from the staging area on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 during closeout processing. After this date, users will no longer have access to staging areas or certified reports for that school year. Historical student data for 2017-18 will still be available via the Student Search feature.


For assistance with downloading your collections or reports, refer to the MSDS New User Toolkit and the Using the MSDS Reports in the Help and Training section of the MSDS webpage.

If you have any questions, email the CEPI customer support team at, or call 517-335-0505 x3. Please provide your name, district code and district name (if applicable), telephone number (including area code and extension), your email address and your specific questions.
