The following instructions will assist districts in completing the Introduction component of the district’s ePlan in the Texas ePlan System. Districts may carryover data from an existing plan into a new or updated plan.
The data in this section may be edited to allow you to update your own district’s information. Please realize that changes you make in the Texas ePlan, such as updating a principal's name, only affect your district's information in that system. To ensure accuracy of information in other state-based systems including the Texas STaR Chart and PEIMS, you must update this information in the centralized AskTED (Texas Education School Directory) database.
The only items that are not editable are the Campus ID, Region, and Campus STaR Chart Completion data.
