TSDS PEIMS Technical Support for Hosted TxEIS Only Districts
Region 3 will extract data from TxEIS to a PEIMS file which will create the XML interchange; validate data; promote loaded data, prepare/finalize PEIMS submission; work with district on attaining zero fatal errors by creating reports for validation; and mark data complete. District will sign off on verification of data and superintendent will approve before Region 3 accepts data to submit to TEA.
TSDS Core Collections
ECDS (Early Childhood Data System) is the first of a proposed 160 TEA collections to be submitted through TSDS.
Region 3 will provide assistance with these collections through the use of an Excel spreadsheet provided by TEA or other sources; convert data to XML format; validate data; and promote data. District will print required reports for verification and approve data to submit to TEA.
TSDS StudentDPS Dashboard
Region 3 will assist in scheduling required uploads through the districts’ information software, i.e. TxEIS, Skyward, Pentamation, etc. These loads must be performed daily/weekly. This service includes one on‐site visit for training in the use of the StudentDPS dashboard.
