What is PEIMS?
    Many of us have worked with PEIMS data in one way or another but may not know exactly what PEIMS is.
    From student to staff demographics...
    ...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.  

    The data collected through the PEIMS electronic collection method has:

    • A standard set of definitions, codes, formats, procedures and dates for the collection of data published as the PEIMS Data Standards;
    • Standard edit procedures;
    • An established database design;
    • A production system to format and load data into the TEA enterprise database; and
    • Written documentation describing the numeric and alphanumeric values stored in the database published as the Data Documentation.
