MARSS Web Edit System (WES)

The Minnesota Automated Reporting Student System (MARSS) collects student data required by more than one area of the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) via one system. Minnesota Automated Reporting Student Web Edit System (MWES) is the system used to gather Minnesota districts information.

This crucial data is the primary data MDE uses to make payment of funds to local school districts. Data collected by MARSS are used for a variety of purposes, including state aid and levy calculations, federal grant allocations, federal and state civil rights reporting, unduplicated child count, and National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) .

There are two MARSS reporting cycles in MARSS WES:

  • Fall submissions: The Fall submission(s) should include all student records up to the end of the school year.

  • End-of-Year (EOY) submissions: The EOY submissions should include all student records for the entire year, whether or not the students were enrolled on the last day of school. The MARSS WES provides many output reports that are used to verify the accuracy and completeness of the data.
Submission periods and more information can be found on the MARSS-Student Accounting page.
