Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) Services
PEIMS is a state ESC Core Services program that offers a statewide system for collecting, storing, and utilizing information about public education in Texas. A comprehensive school database, maintained at the Texas Education Agency, is the central feature of PEIMS. The database is comprised of detailed data about school districts and charter schools, staff, campuses, students, and district finance. Region 9 ESC provides training and technical assistance to all school districts and charter schools at no charge.
Texas Student Data Systems (TSDS)
The Texas Student Data System (TSDS) is a new statewide system that modernizes and improves the quality of data collection, management, and reporting in Texas education. TSDS modernizes the PEIMS data collection process to reduce technology risk and system downtime allowing for more system availability and ease of use, places real-time student performance data in the hands of educators to improve student achievement, and serves as one common data collection platform for TEA to reduce data collection burden on districts and charter schools. Region 9 provides training and technical assistance to districts as staff members transition to the TSDS system.
