Our services

CEPI polls

Our annual survey gauges public support for currents issues affecting education.

The 2013-14 Poll provides insight into public opinion on topics ranging from the impact of SOL testing, performance of colleges and universities in the commonwealth and safety in both public K-12 schools and colleges and universities. 

CEPI in the news

It is with sadness that we share of the sudden passing of our Executive Director, Dr. Bill Bosher.  He had a great impact on education in the commonwealth through his many years of service, but also through the hundreds of students and colleagues that he mentored.  He is greatly missed.
