TBAC Success!

TxEIS Image

The TBAC (TxEIS Business Advisory Committee) meeting wrapped up last week. It, like its sibling TSAC, went over marvelously. Ed Schuetze, our Business Consultant Coordinator, was the brains behind the whole thing. He said they had lots of great discussions and even changed it up a little by including breakout sessions in which smaller groups of consultants discussed a variety of topics. Your enhancement requests were discussed and ranked and, of course, ACA was in the air (stay tuned for more information about those changes). Something to be proud of for us and for you. Because TxEIS works for you!

TxEIS Image

The Fall (Collection 1) submission is just around the corner (already!). We cover Legacy and TSDS and always include the latest data in the collection like Individual Graduation Committee, Early College High School, and T-STEM. Let us worry about the nitty gritty so you can get on with your life. Remember: TxEIS means effortless mandate compliance.

TSAC: A Resounding Success


TSAC (TxEIS Student Advisory Committee) finished up last week. “It was a great experience,” said Charles Wimett, our star Consultant Coordinator who put the whole thing together. There were breakout sessions in which consultants worked together to prioritize YOUR enhancement requests, discussion of upcoming features (we think you’ll love the bold new look of TxEIS), and walkthroughs so that you know you’re getting the best student information system we can provide. You work hard every day to make your schools the best they can be. We’re here to help.

We’re Listening… TSAC/TBAC Fall 2015


Did you know that TxEIS holds conferences for consultants at least twice a year? The TxEIS Student Advisory Committee and the TxEIS Business Advisory Committee will both meet in October to complete training and learn about new and upcoming features in the system. A big part of the conference is to review enhancements. These are things that you’ve asked for. Because we’re listening… And always happy to hear from you. Contact your local Education Service Center with any questions you might have.
