The PEIMS Summer Submission (Submission 3) is one of four annual PEIMS Submissions required by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). LEAs must report all students served and staff employed on the snapshot date. The Summer Submission includes school year attendance, discipline, and course completion data.

Aeries provides tools to extract the appropriate data for the Summer Submission from the district's Student Information System (SIS) database. The extract programs create the files that can be submitted to TEA.

For a complete list of extract rules and edits, see TSDS Web-Enabled Data Standards (TWEDS).

For PEIMS Data Submission Timelines, see TWEDS Data Submission Timelines - PEIMS.


The following permissions must be set in Security for users who will be managing PEIMS submissions.

Additionally, users will need appropriate permission to view or update the individual tables that are used for maintaining data fields used in Texas state reporting.

Data Maintenance

Most state reporting data elements are directly correlated to a field on an Aeries page. Each correlation is documented so you know exactly where the data is maintained in Aeries

Setup Steps

  • Any local codes used for Summer PEIMS fields must be added from Update Code Table. The local codes will need to be translated to PEIMS codes, described below.

  • Aeries provides several fields for maintaining student truancy information that must be reported to the state with the Summer Submission. See Texas - Truancy Information and State Reporting.

Extract Process

Before running the StudentAttendance interchange, run one of the following reports for all reporting periods with the Recalculate option selected:

  • Student Attendance Detail
  • Student Attendance Campus Summary
  • Student Attendance District Summary

School Info > Imports and Exports > Texas State Reporting

Before creating extracts, verify the settings on the Options, Code Translations, and Schools tabs on the Texas State Reporting page. Also verify that the Snapshot Date is set correctly for the current school year.

Note: If you modify the Snapshot Date field, use the Save button on the Options tab to save the change.

Options Tab

Expand the Options tab on the Texas State Reporting page to set various options before creating extracts.
