The NC Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has developed a Unique Statewide Student and Staff Identifier (UID) System that will be the cornerstone of the NC Common Education Data Analysis & Reporting System (CEDARS). The UID System enables LEAs and Charter Schools to assign a unique statewide identifier for every student and staff member who participates in the NC education system at any point in time. Establishing the capability to assign these identifiers is the first step in DPI’s multi-stage effort to create CEDARS. The UID enables reliable matching of student-level and staff-level records over time and across DPI applications. This capability is improving data quality at the State and local levels and supports State and local policy makers and service providers in making better data-driven decisions.
