The Texas Education Code, Section 42.006, requires all school districts to participate in the Public Education Information Management System, known as PEIMS. The purpose of PEIMS is to provide useful, accurate, and timely information on student demographics and academic performance, personnel, and school district finances. This information is used by the Texas Education Agency, the legislature, and other agencies to adequately oversee and evaluate the public education system.
