EDITPLUS users with PID Search privileges can query a copy of the PID database for a particular person. Searches can be conducted on one or more of the following identifying data elements - Social Security number or state alternative identification number 1, first name, last name and date of birth.
Once a PID search is complete, results can be viewed for specific individuals. The results display on the PID Detail page. Information on this page includes: the PID record, the submitting district, the PID change log and PET (PID Enrollment Tracking) event history.
Detailed information on how to conduct a PID search and how to interpret the results displayed on the PID Detail page can be found in the PEIMS EDITPLUS User Reference and Training Guide.
Another option is to query the Unique-ID database for a specific user. This database maintains a unique identifier database entry for every student and staff within the Texas public school and open enrollment charter system and is synchronized with the PID database. Searches can be conducted on one or more of the following identifying data elements - Texas State Student or Staff Unique-ID, Social Security number or state alternative identification number 1, first name, last name and date of birth.
