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 ASCENDER State Reporting application allows LEAs to extract the required data for each PEIMS and TSDS collections from the Business and Student applications. The ASCENDER software is updated to ensure ongoing compliance with TEA requirements.
Business and Student data is edited to ensure it meets requirements of the TEA Data Standards. The ASCENDER software provides flexibility to convert local codes to state mandated values to ensure compliance with state reporting requirements.
