The Person Enrollment Tracking (PET) application is designed as an extension
to the Person Identification Database (PID). It provides districts and
open-enrollment charter schools the ability to maintain student information via
PET events. A PET event is an individual student's enrollment to or withdrawal
from a campus ID of enrollment coupled with the date the event took place. PET
events are part of a student's PID record and can be very helpful when a
district needs to identify any previous Texas districts of enrollment for
students newly enrolled in their districts.
TEA requires the submission of PET files as an efficient and reliable way to
dynamically track public school student enrollments and withdrawals. If two
districts have PET enrollment events for the same student during the same
timeframe, both districts will receive a PET statement of duplicate enrollment
Student identification information may not be
added or changed via PET. See the Unique-ID application documentation, page 44,
Assign an ID for an Individual Person, for information on how to add a new student or change an existing student's
identification information. A student must exist in PID before any PET events
can be added to their PID record. If a student does not exist in PID, they must
first be added via the Unique-ID application.
EDIT+ users with PET Access privileges have the
ability to use the following PET functions: perform a PET search in PID, view a
history of PET events, maintain a PET event, and add a PET event.
