What is CEDARS?
CEDARS is North Carolina's PreK-13 State Longitudinal Data System. The system is composed of various DPI source data collection systems, a student and staff identification system, a centralized data repository, and associated reporting and analysis (or "business intelligence") tools.
CEDARS enables state, local, and federal policymakers, and service providers to analyze trends and relationships between various educational factors and student performance over time.
