Apply to be Stage 1 Dashboard Adopters

TEA is now accepting applications from LEAs who would like to become Stage 1 adopters of the studentGPS® Dashboards.  Apply today to give your teachers access to cutting edge student performance dashboards for the 2014-15 school year.

TSDS Rollout Plan

TEA and the Education Service Centers (ESCs) have completed the TSDS Rollout Plan, which breaks the statewide TSDS implementation into an early adopter stage and two full production release stages.

TSDS Status Update

The Limited Production Release (LPR) LEAs have been successfully transitioned from hosting at Region 10 to hosting by TEA. Both LPRs and dashboard early adopters have been loading to and using the dashboards.

The first release of TSDS PEIMS rolled out to the early adopters in June 2014.

    Early Adopters

    Some dashboard early adopters began using the ODS and the dashboards in January/February 2014, as well as using associated systems, like TIMS, and 60 more will have implemented by then end of 2014.

    Select LPRs began adopting TSDS PEIMS in 2014.  PEIMS Early Adopters will begin using PEIMS in 2014/15, during which they will parallel test the TSDS system against legacy EDIT+.  Note that collections submitted through TSDS will not be official during this first year; early adopters must still submit their files through EDIT+ to comply with state policy.

    Future Deployments

    TSDS will be rolled out to the remaining LEAs in Texas in stages, ending in 2016-17.

    Previous Deployments

    The previous deployments were the limited production releases (LPRs).

    Seven LEAs implemented prototypes of the studentGPS® Dashboards, during which our team
    collected feedback and made improvements in response to user requests.

    You can read some of the LPR users' comments and case studies in the What People Are Saying section.
