20233-24 Fall PEIMS Student Enrollment Interchange Update

TX Interchange Student Enrollment: Version 23.7.3

The xml output in the Graduation Program Extension for the Fall PEIMS collection is updated to include the new E1736 Texas First Early HS Completion Program element (TX-TexasFirstEarlyHSCompletionProgram). This field is coded on the Graduation Information page for students graduating early in the prior school year to indicate whether the student graduated two or more semesters early or less than two semesters early. If left blank, the element is suppressed in the xml file.


Attendance Interchange Updates for PEIMS Extended Year Submission

TX Interchange Student Attendance: Version 23.7.3

Updates to the Attendance Interchange are now available for the PEIMS Extended Year Submission (Submission 4). The prior elements for Days Absent and Excess Hours in Instructional Setting do not apply to the PEIMS Extended Year Submission for ADSY attendance and are now suppressed in the xml output.


New Data Collection: At Risk Overrides

A new At Risk Overrides page is now available to capture manual entries and overrides for At Risk Reasons as reported in the Fall PEIMS submission. The page is available under the Student State/Province – TX link in the legacy UI and under the Student Compliance link in the Enhanced User Interface view.

Important! This release includes the new data collection only. In a subsequent update, the At Risk Auto-Code process and report will be updated to include logic for the new fields.

  • Districts can begin coding students for At Risk Overrides now.

  • After the updated At Risk Auto-Code process is released, districts can run the process to update At Risk special program records based on the additional student coding done on the new page.

At Risk Override Fields

  • This new 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.

  • The new 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 the new 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.

    • Expiration Date

      • 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.


New Field and Nightly Process for Pass/Fail Indicator Code Calculation in Historical Grades

To support Ed-Fi reporting of student transcript records for PEIMS, a new nightly process to calculate and store the Pass/Fail Indicator Code in historical grades is now available in Texas District Management > Texas Auto-Code and Nightly Process Preferences. The preference is enabled by default and no action is required by the district.

  • A new Pass/Fail Indicator Code (E0949 - Calculated) field is now available on the Historical Grades page: S_TX_SGR_X.E0949_PF_Calc

    • The new calculated field displays directly above the existing Pass/Fail Indicator Code, which is re-labeled as an Override to indicate its purpose.

    • The calculated field displays in read-only format and holds the TEA Pass/Fail Indicator Codes 01-14.

  • The calculation leverages existing logic used in the PEIMS Summer and Extended Year collections to calculate the Pass/Fail Indicator for records with stored codes mapped as S1, S2 or AV Final Grades in Texas Store Code Mapping.


New Student CTE Programs of Study Page

A new student CTE Programs of Study page link is now available on the Career and Tech Special Program page. This page is designed to hold the TEA-calculated CTE Program of Study records imported from the TEA PDM3-404-002_CareerandTechnicalEducation.csv report file. These records are based on the CTE course completion data submitted in the Summer and Extended Year PEIMS submissions. Users can navigate back from the Programs of Study page to the Career and Tech Special Programs page by clickling the “Show Career and Tech” button.

  • For each year beginning in the 2020-21 school year, TEA calculates CTE Indicators and Programs of Study records for each student completing at least one CTE course.

  • Depending on the CTE courses completed, students may have a single record or may have multiple programs of study and different CTE indicators for each program.

Important! This release includes the new Programs of Study table and data collection only. In a subsequent release, a new Import Process for TEA Calculated CTE Programs of Study will be provided to automatically populate the records from the TEA report file.
