The Public Education
Information Management System (PEIMS) encompasses all data requested and
received by TEA about public education, including student demographic and
academic performance, personnel, financial, and organizational information.
The data collected through the PEIMS electronic collection method
- A standard set of definitions, codes, formats, procedures, and
dates for the collection of data published as the PEIMS Data Standards;
- Standard edit procedures;
- An established database design;
- A production system to format and load data into the TEA enterprise
- Written documentation describing the numeric and
alphanumeric values stored in the database published as the Data
For the PEIMS electronic collection, school
districts submit their data via standardized computer files, as defined by the
PEIMS Data Standards.
Technical support for gathering the data from
district databases is supplied by one of the twenty educational service centers
(ESCs) or by private vendors. A software system of standard edits, to enhance
the quality of data, is used by ESCs and again by the agency on district data
submissions. Currently, the major categories of data collected are:
organization data; budget data; actual financial data; staff data; student
demographic, program participation and school leaver data; student attendance,
course completion and discipline data.
TEA manages other collections for
evaluation, monitoring, funding, or auditing purposes. Many are automated,
In compliance with the Texas Education Code, PEIMS contains only the data
necessary for the legislature and TEA to perform
their legally authorized functions in overseeing public education.
