Maine Education Data Management System
MDOE Data Management System Targeted To Link Maine Schools Statewide
The Maine Department of Education is embarking on an ambitious statewide project targeted to deliver an information management system that will link the agency with schools around the state. The Maine Education Data Management System (MEDMS) was originally defined in a Request For Proposal (RFP) issued in December 2001. MEDMS will allow MDOE to communicate with local school administration districts and cooperatively manage their data for state and federal regulatory and assessment compliance, while managing the department’s internal database and information flow. MEDMS will meet the “No Child Left Behind” (NCLB) Federal Reporting Requirements, and it will satisfy the State of Maine Chapter 125 and 127 requirements.
It is important to understand that this project is comprehensive and will involve all school personnel from the superintendent to the classroom teacher and support staff.
MDOE also requires MEDMS to comply with the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
