PSSR-298415PEIMS Fall Student Enrollment Interchange Updates

TX Interchange Student Enrollment: Version 22.8.2
Updates to support the 2022-23 Fall PEIMS Submission are now available for the Student Enrollment Interchange.

  • The interchange logic is updated to use the new calculated and stored values for student As-of-Status Codes and other internal calculations when determining the required record output.
  • The Student Graduation Program Extension complex is updated to report the new Financial Aid Application Code (E1724) from State/Province - TX > Graduation Information.
    • This element is output for all graduates in the xml file as <TX-FinancialAidApplication> with values of 01 (Financial application form completed) or 02 (Exception submitted/Opt-Out).

PSSR-292470PEIMS Fall Student Interchange Updates

TX Interchange Student: Version 22.8.2
Updates to support the 2022-23 Fall PEIMS Submission are now available for the Student Interchange.

  • As-of-Status Codes
    • Student As-of-Status Codes (AOS) are no longer calculated on the fly within the interchange.
    • Instead, the calculations run during the Texas nightly process and are stored in the database. The calculation and stored values are also updated immediately when student enrollment records are modified.
    • The interchange is updated to extract the calculated value from the AS_OF_STATUS_FALL field in the S_TX_STU_AOS_C table for the current year.
    • Navigate to State/Province – TX > As of Status Calculations to view the AOS codes.
    • Important – 7th Grade Repeaters: As documented in the release notes for the prior release, the data collection for 7th Grade Repeaters is modified for 2022-23. If a student was enrolled in Grade 7 in a different district in the prior year and is enrolled in Grade 7 in your district this year, you must flag that student in the new 7th Grade Repeater field in the PEIMS General record in order for the As-of-Status Code to be correctly calculated.
  • EB/EL Indicator for Re-classified Students
    • Once a student is exited from EL/EB with a code of 5, this code applies to the student in perpetuity, regardless of the Exit Date in the EL record and regardless of any other EL/EB records.
    • The logic for the TX-LEPIndicator*(Emergent Bilingual Indicator Code) is updated to report a value of 5 if the student has either a closed record for any prior year with this code, or an open record for the current year.
  • Crisis Codes: Prior year crisis codes are no longer reported and have been removed from the xml file.
  • PK Eligible Previous Year
    • This element is no longer calculated on the fly within the interchange. In a prior release, a nightly process to calculate and store the PK Eligible Previous Year value was implemented. The calculated value is populated within the Pre-K Special Program record, and an override field is also available.
    • The interchange is now updated to report the value from the Pre-K Special Program record for students enrolled in PK on the Fall Snapshot Date in the current year.
      • Override: Override field for Fall PEIMS (S_TX_SEN_PREK_X.E1649_PK_ELIG_PREV_YEAR_OVR) if not blank.
      • Calculated: Otherwise, the stored value is reported ( S_TX_SEN_PREK_X.E1649_PK_ELIG_PREV_YEAR).
      • If the student is not enrolled in grade PK on the Fall Snapshot, this element is suppressed.
  • IBC’s: Post Secondary Certification Licensure Result (E1733)
    • This new mandatory element was previously added for the 2022-23 year to the Graduation Information > Performance Acknowledgements > Certification/Licensures page.
    • The element indicates the result of a state, nationally or internationally recognized IBC examination taken by a student with the following values:
      • 01 IBC Earned (default to 01 if blank in record)
      • 02 IBC Exam Passed (IBC not Earned)
      • 03 IBC Exam Failed
    • The element is now reported within the TX-IndustryCertificationType sub-complex for the PEIMS Fall and Summer Collections as TX-PostSecondaryCertificationLicensureResult in the xml file.
    • If the value is missing in the PowerSchool record as a result of an incorrect import, a default value of 01 is reported.

The Student Census Block Export report is updated to conform to the new TEA Census Block Tool CSV file format for 2022-23. New parameters are also implemented to provide additional options.

  • TEA Census Block Tool Process
    • The PowerSchool Student Census Block export file serves as the input file to the TEA Census Block tool, which must be downloaded from the TSDS system.
    • When the user uploads the file to the TEA tool, the records are processed and student census block codes are assigned.
    • An output file link appears; click this link to download and save the file.
    • The TEA output file is in the exact same format as the PowerSchool export file, but now contains the census block codes and other related fields.
    • Important: In the subsequent release, a new Student Census Block Import Tool will be added to the State Reports page.
      • The TEA Census Block output file will serve as the input to this tool, which will automatically load the records into the PowerSchool Student Census Block fields.
      • Districts are advised to wait until the new import tool is available in September to load student census block records into PowerSchool.
    • In addition, support for the TEA Census Block Group Calculator API is also planned for a subsequent release ahead of the PEIMS Fall Snapshot.
      • The PowerSchool integration with the Census Block API will offer districts a second option to provision student census block codes automatically, without the need for imports or exports.
      • Additional details and instructions will be provided when that release is made available.
  • TEA Qualifying Criteria for Student Census Block Codes
    • Enrolled on the Fall Snapshot Date
    • Economic Disadvantaged Code not = 00 or blank
    • Homeless Status Code = 0 or blank
    • ADA Eligibility Code not = 0, 4, 5, or 8
    • Attribution Code not = 21 or 23
  • PowerSchool Student Census Block Export Updates
    • Parameters
      • Qualifying students with no current year record (existing option): Students meet the TEA criteria and have no Census Block record dated in the current year.
      • Qualifying students with missing records or address changes (existing option): Students meet the TEA criteria, but either have no Census Block record or the student’s address in the Census Block record does not match the student’s current address in PowerSchool.
      • All students enrolled on the Fall snapshot date (new option): TEA qualifying criteria are not applied except for enrollment on the Snapshot.
      • The selected X students (new option): TEA qualifying criteria are not applied; the user creates a selection of students on the Start Page.
      • Additionally, the Effective Date parameter is removed. The Effective Date will automatically be populated as the Fall Snapshot Date by the new census block import and API processes.
  • Export File Output:
    • The PowerSchool Census Block Export file does not contain a header row per the TEA requirements; blank fields are separated by commas.
    • Important - Do not open the export file in Excel or the required, blank, comma-separated fields at the end of the file will be stripped out, rendering the file invalid for the TEA tool. Instead, to inspect the file, open it in Notepad or another text editor.
