New School Profiles
Based on parent and educator feedback, CEC has added new fields to the School Profile this year to give parents a better understanding of what each school has to offer:
*Accepting New Students
New to the guide this year, CEC will ask schools to note which grades are accepting new students for the upcoming school year (2020-2021). This is critical for parents who want to be sure that they can find an open seat for their child. In the search process, parents will have the option to filter out schools that are not accepting new students for their child’s grade.
Schools will be able to update this information at any time via the portal. CEC will send out reminders to update the information at least 4x per year (March, June, September, December).

We Need Your Help
We are beginning to collect information for the updated website! Below, you’ll find important information about submitting your information for the schools guide.
Why is this important?
Families across Detroit struggle to find helpful, actionable information when searching for schools. The Detroit Schools Guide addresses that gap and helps match families with schools that meet their needs.
WIth the Detroit Schools Guide, CEC seeks to support a family-first education ecosystem in which parents and caregivers have access to information and resources that help them make the best decisions for their children.
How do I submit updated information?
CEC will be collecting updated information through an online portal. Each school will have one lead contact that has access to the portal to update school information (this year's lead contact is currently the staff that was assigned based on information gathered during 19/20). Each lead contact will receive an email with the portal log-in information.
Use the search tool at the top of the page to identify your lead.
When do I need to submit my school's information?
ll school profile information should be submitted by Friday, April 3. You do not need to fill out your profile in one sitting! You can save your progress and return to it at a later point.
What will I see when I log in to the portal?
The lead contact will see a form containing all the fields that they need to complete for the profile. For schools that were listed in last year’s schools guide, the school’s old information will be pre-populated in some fields. Please review and make edits where necessary.
How long will this take?
There are a number of new fields this year for schools to fill out, including an ability to upload images of your school.
We estimate that it will only take30 minutes to complete a school profile,but it may take longer to gather all required information (photos, “points of pride” description, etc.). Don’t leave this to the last minute!
