Texas Student Data System

We will be hosting a presentation showcasing the Texas Student Data System facilitated by TEA on May 26th from 9 – 10:30 at Region XIII (ECampus SP1121777). Every district will be invited to send one to two central office representatives (specifically those that work in the realm of assessment and accountability). TEA will review the functionality of the data system and will answer any questions related to reporting and release dates.

 Prior to the presentation, TEA is requesting that each district participate in a brief survey. Your input will provide a better perspective of the current PEIMS submission process and insights for improving training, validations, and reporting in the new system.

These survey results will be included in the TSDS Overview Session. Your responses will provide valuable feedback as TEA designs this new system.

 Please complete the survey no later than May 20.

 I look forward to seeing all of the district reps on May 26th. Please let me know if you have any questions. I have included a brief synopsis of TSDS below.

 Texas Student Data System

 The Texas Student Data System will provide educators and policymakers with actionable, timely data to improve student performance while easing the burden of data collection on districts. Collectively, the TSDS components will standardize the data collection and data management process, and equip educators with historical, timely and actionable student data to drive classroom and student success.

 The goals of the system are to:

I.  Enhance performance management capabilities through the creation of academic dashboards and early warning systems that will, for example, help determine which students are at risk of dropping out and recommend intervention strategies;

II.  Alleviate the data collection burden on school districts and improve data quality; and

III.  Integrate key data into the Texas Education Agency (TEA) P–20 data warehouse, the Texas P–16 Public Education Information Resource (TPEIR), to better understand students’ preparedness to contribute to the 21st-century workforce.

The system will leverage four major system components to accomplish these goals:

1.  Voluntary state-sponsored student information system (SIS);

2.  District connections database (DCD);

3.  Certified Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) data store; and

4.  TPEIR
