Data reporting by local education agencies is a key way we track and measure the progress and performance of Washington’s students, schools, school districts, and programs. Most data collections are reported by school districts and other local education agencies to OSPI using one of more than 60 web-based applications in the Education Data System (EDS).

Education Data System Administration for Administrators (EDS)

Detailed information about creating EDS accounts, available user roles and how to administer security roles in school districts can be found on this page.


The Comprehensive Education Data and Research System (CEDARS) is a longitudinal data system managed by OSPI to collect, store and report data related to students, programs, courses, and teachers. This is one of our largest and most complex data collections in EDS and provides data used for numerous state and federal reports as well as research and policy development. CEDARS has been collected since 2009-2010 and replaced the Core Student Record System (CSRS) which had limited student data for years prior.
