TxEIS Business Advisory Committee (TBAC)

TxEIS Image


Time for TxEIS Business Advisory Committee to work (TBAC). Similar to TSAC, which wrapped up yesterday, TBAC offers the Business consultants from across the state the opportunity to get together and share their wealth of knowledge as well as get up to speed about exciting new and upcoming changes to TxEIS. Collaboration builds our software and we want to make sure you have the best Student and Business Information System you can. We always enjoy hearing from you.

Attendance Minutes

This is a big change to how your instruction time is calculated. We told you about it a couple of months ago. It’s here now. For more information about what changes there are, check out this flyer.

In short, Minimum Daily Minutes and Shortened Minimum Daily Minutes fields were added to for TEA-defined minutes of instruction per day. Daily Minutes and Shortened Daily Minutes were added for LEA-defined minutes, which can be more but not less than the TEA-defined minutes. Plus four new Day Type Selections were added to the campus calendar.

For more detailed information, click on the link for the flyer above, or contact your local ESC.

Summer PEIMS

There are some changes in the works for Summer PEIMS. The two big ones deal with the new calendar minutes and accountability measures (districts will now pick three that they will be rated on primarily). We’re ready for all of it so you can be too. We’re also here to answer any questions you might have. And don’t forget: the deadline for Summer PEIMS is June 22nd. It’s going to be a great summer!

OCR

The Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) is in full swing for all local education agencies (LEAs). We’ve been working hard to make sure you have a smooth, seamless experience submitting your OCR data. Have a question? Let us know.

New Consultant Training

Every year TxEIS holds a week-long New Consultant Training session. It’s a crash course in the software. But it’s also an opportunity for consultants to get together. Because TxEIS is a collaborative effort. And you, our clients, reap the reward of this cooperative effort. TxEIS Knows Texas. We’re here to answer your questions — fully trained!

Information Security Meeting

TxEIS makes sure you’re secure. One of the ways we do this is to get folks from the TCC TxEIS Data Center, iTCCS and ESC-20, as well as, of course, TxEIS, together quarterly to proactively discuss things like ransomeware and DDOS attacks, and how to prevent or deal with them. TxEIS has your best interest at heart. Call us and let us know what you’re concerned about.

New Help

The new, much anticipated Help has begun its roll-out. It’s currently available in Scheduling and Test Scores, but look for it in many more applications by this summer. Onward and upward. Let us know if you have questions.
