This data collection is intended to provide additional options for districts and to fill gaps in the existing At Risk Auto-Code process so that each TEA At Risk Reason has at least one corresponding PowerSchool data source.
This data collection also eliminates the need for users to enter overrides directly into the At Risk Special Program record, which is no longer a recommended practice.
All manually-coded reasons and overrides can now be entered and managed on this page.
At Risk Reason
New manual entry/override fields are provided for each of the TEA At-Risk Reasons with the exception of EB/EL and Homeless.
EB/EL and Homeless must be coded in the standard PowerSchool source fields in the EB/EL student program record and PEIMS General record in order to meet other PEIMS reporting requirements.
End dates for each At Risk Reason are also provided with the exception of Dropout, Incarceration, and Retained, which are considered permanent factors.
If the user codes the student for an override, validation requires that the corresponding Expiration Date also be entered.
Some At Risk Reasons can remain in effect for multiple school years while others apply to a single school year. Districts should manage the Expiration Dates as they see fit based on TEA guidance and the district’s own processes.
In general, as overrides remain in effect for at least one school year, the Expiration Date should be the day after the last day of the school year. The At Risk Auto-Code logic will use the expiration date to re-set the reasons and/or At Risk status in the At Risk special program record at the start of the new year.
Type: Additional dropdown list fields for the Protective Services, Residential Placement Facility and Incarceration reasons capture optional details about the reason for the manual entry/override.
This table is an extension of the Students table and is used to track At Risk Overrides used in the Texas At Risk Auto-Code routine for PEIMS Reporting.
