Public Education Information Management System
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.
How Is PEIMS Data Used?
Data collected through PEIMS is used by several TEA programs to create reports, including the following:
- TEA Standard Reports
- Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR)
- Accountability System
- Pocket Edition
What Are 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?
Compatible Software Systems: As TSDS is implemented across Texas, this page will list software that has demonstrated compatibility with one or more TSDS subsystems, as verified to TEA by at least one LEA.
What Is TREx?
TREx, the Texas Records Exchange system, enables electronic transfers of student records and transcripts to other districts or institutions of higher education.
