    PEIMS Responsibility

    PEIMS management is massive and requires all district and campus staff to work together to collect, review, correct and verify PEIMS Data. The Business Office and Human Resources play the primary role of managing PEIMS staff and financial data. At the campus-level, the Principal is responsible for implementing systems and procedures to ensure PEIMS data accuracy. Teachers, Counselors and Special Program Directors/Coordinators (i.e. SPED, G/T, CTE, BIL/ESL, At-Risk, Dropout Prevention, Pregnancy Related Services, etc.,) are also responsible for coding information related to attendance and special programs. While PEIMS Data Clerks and other data entry staff play a significant part with data entry and generating reports, these staff cannot be assigned the responsibility of determining a student's PEIMS coding information in accordance with TEA student attendance accounting rules and regulations. Ultimately, the Superintendent is the school authority responsible for the accuracy of all PEIMS data submitted to the state as certified by his/her electronic signature for each PEIMS submission and resubmission.

    Note: Falsifying/tampering with PEIMS data is a felony offense of the 3rd Degree.

    PEIMS data is collected four times each school year. The submissions are the following listed below:

    • Fall Collection – represents the state of LEAs as the Fall snapshot date. Although the Fall Snapshot Date may not be a day of instruction, school districts still report all students served and staff employed on that date. Exception: Leaver data are reported based on leaver status as of the last Friday in September.
    • Mid-Year Collection – includes the audited actual financial data for the prior school year. 

    • Summer Collection – includes year long student attendance (regular and flexible), course completions, disciplinary actions, student restraints, Title I, Part A participation, course sections, and teacher class assignments/staff data, district/charter school and campus performance ratings, school board requests, and Foundation High School Program participation data. 

    • Extended Collection – includes special education extended year services (ESY) student data for the school year, student flexible attendance for credit recovery, Bilingual/ESL summer instruction, Additional Days School Year (ADSY) and summertime dual credit course completion for students.
