Welcome to CIMS!


Ensuring that students and children with disabilities are prepared to live independent and productive lives is the ultimate goal of all the activities monitored by the Michigan Department of Education Offices of Special Education (OSE) and the Early Childhood Development and Family Education.

The Continuous Improvement and Monitoring System (CIMS) is the system used by the state to promote positive outcomes and ensure compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 2004 and the Michigan Administrative Rules for Special Education. CIMS was designed to help locals analyze and interpret data and keep track of all monitoring activities in a single location. CIMS reflects the priorities of the IDEA 2004 and the State Performance Plan (SPP) and is aligned with the School Improvement Framework.
