TEA’s TSDS “Early Childhood” Data System
For over two decades, the State of Texas has been collecting data to support reporting and policy efforts at both the state and federal level. Statewide systems store and manage data, however, these systems were not developed to support the increasing demand for timely, consolidated and actionable data.
Focusing on federal compliance reporting requirements, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) worked with Sistema to create a district-facing data warehouse that meets the expectations of educators and relevant stakeholders. This environment is known as the Texas Student Data System (TSDS)/ Education Data Warehouse (EDW).
Benefits of the TSDS Early Childhood Data System (ECDS) initiative:
- Modernization of current data collection processes to mitigate risks and improve downtime.
- Make real-time student performance data available for educators, enabling data-driven decisions.
- Consolidation of disparate data collection points to a single platform interface.
