Public Education Information Management System


The Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) encompasses all data requested and received by TEA about public education, including student demographic and academic performance, personnel, financial, and organizational information.

The data collected through the PEIMS electronic collection method has:

  • A standard set of definitions, codes, formats, procedures, and dates for the collection of data published as the PEIMS Data Standards;
  • Standard edit procedures;
  • An established database design;
  • A production system to format and load data into the TEA enterprise database; and
  • Written documentation describing the numeric and alphanumeric values stored in the database published as the Data Documentation.

For the PEIMS electronic collection, school districts submit their data via standardized computer files, as defined by the PEIMS Data Standards.
