TSDS Newsletter: TSDS PEIMS rolls out to early adopters

August 2014

TSDS PEIMS Rolled out to Early Adopters

The first release of TSDS PEIMS has been successfully rolled out in June 2014 as a Limited Production Release (LPR). LPR adopters will submit parallel PEIMS data in the 2014/2015 school year through the new TSDS PEIMS system and the legacy EDIT+ system.

The data submitted through EDIT+ is the local education agencies' (LEA) official PEIMS submission; the data submitted through the TSDS PEIMS system will be a parallel test of the data to ensure that a TSDS PEIMS submission represents the data exactly as it is in the EDIT+ system.

Four LEAs are participating in the PEIMS LPR, with more joining in the fall.
