PSSR-2940082022-23 Updates for PK Eligible Previous Year Indicator

Updates are now available to support the calculation of the PK Eligible Previous Year Indicator Code for the PEIMS Fall and Summer Submissions for both TEA Legacy and Ed-Fi reporting for the 2022-23 school year. Next year, this element will no longer be calculated on the fly within the interchanges. Instead, the calculation will now run during a new Texas nightly process. The resulting calculations are stored in the database and available within the Pre-K Special Program record. Overrides to the calculated fields are also available in the Pre-K Special Program record to be used for PK students enrolled as PK in a different district in the prior year, or for other special scenarios.

  • Pre-K Special Program Record
    • PK Eligible Previous Year Indicator Code (E1649) – Calculated FALL: The existing PK Eligible Previous Year Indicator Code (E1649) field (S_TX_SEN_PREK_X.E1649_PK_ELIG_PREV_YEAR) is converted to a read-only field and re-labeled. This field will store the Fall PEIMS calculation.
    • PK Eligible Previous Year Indicator Code (E1649) – Override FALL: New override field for Fall PEIMS (S_TX_SEN_PREK_X.E1649_PK_ELIG_PREV_YEAR_OVR).
    • PK Eligible Previous Year Indicator Code (E1649) – Calculated SUMR: New read-only field to store the Summer PEIMS calculation (S_TX_SEN_PREK_X.E1649_PK_ELG_PRE_YR_SUMR).
    • PK Eligible Previous Year Indicator Code (E1649) – Override SUMR: New override field for Summer PEIMS (S_TX_SEN_PREK_X. E1649_PK_ELG_OVR_SUMR).
  • New Nightly PK Eligible Previous Year Calculation Process: This is initially implemented as a separate preference in District Setup but will be incorporated into a new global Texas nightly process in a subsequent release.
    • Student selection for calculation
      • Student is not flagged as Exclude from State Reporting
      • Student is enrolled in a reportable school

      • Student has at least one Pre-K Special Program record in effect during the current year.
    • Pre-K Special Program Record(s) to Populate
      • Most students will have a single Pre-K record in effect per school year; the calcualted values are populated in this record.
      • If a student has multiple Pre-K records in effect in the current year, the calculated values are populated in the most recent record and any prior current year record(s) are left intact.
    • PK Eligible Previous Year Calculated as 0
      • PK students whose age is less than 4 on Sept. 1 of the current year.
      • PK students who currently meet at least one of the following funded PK criteria:
        • Emergent Bilingual (EB)/English learner (EL) = 1
        • Economically Disadvantaged = 99, 01 or 02
        • Military Connected = 1
        • Foster Care = 1, 2, or 3
        • Homeless = 1
        • Star of Texas = 1
      • Default of 0: Any PK students who do not meet any of the criteria for a calculated value of 0 or 1, including students who were not enrolled in the prior year, students with ineligible type ADA codes, and possible other edge case scenarios.
    • PK Eligible Previous Year Calculated as 1: student must meet all criteria
      • Student age on September 1 of the current year is 4 or 5.
      • In the current year, the student does not meet any of the Funded PK Eligibility Criteria listed above.
