Legacy PEIMS Data Collection Resources
The submission of Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS)
data is required of all school districts. The Data Standards provide
instructions on the submission of PEIMS data by school districts to the
Texas Education Agency. PEIMS data files are submitted four times each school year following a schedule established by the PEIMS Data Standards.
PEIMS data reporting requirements:
- Provide descriptions of data elements and the codes used to report them;
- Describe the responsibilities of school districts, education service
centers, and the Texas Education Agency in connection with the data
submission process; and
- Provide descriptions of the data submission requirements, including
submission record layout specifications and data edit specifications.
Collection schedules notify districts and ESCs of submission deadlines:

Texas Education Data Standards
Texas Education Data Standards (TEDS) are XML-based standards for Texas Student Data System (TSDS) and TSDS PEIMS data collections.
TEDS includes all data elements, code tables, business rules, and data validations needed to load local education agency (LEA—Texas school district or charter school) education data. For more information on how PEIMS is changing, see What's New with PEIMS?
