How to Accurately Complete PEIMS State Reporting in Texas

June 16, 2022 at 3:55 PM

The Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) encompasses all data requested and received by Texas Education Agency (TEA) about public education, including student demographic and academic performance, personnel, financial, and organizational information.

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:

  • organizational
  • budget
  • actual financial
  • staff
  • student demographic
  • program participation
  • school leaver
  • student attendance
  • course completion
  • discipline

TEA manages other collections for evaluation, monitoring, funding, or auditing. Many are automated, electronic collections.

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.

That's where Level Data comes in!
