Discipline Data Review – File Center

Data for the discipline reports comes from Summer PEIMS TSDS interchange files extracted from the Student Information System (SIS). The files are then uploaded into the “File Center” of OnDataSuite/OnPar by a designated staff.

Locate the “File Center” on the black menu bar at the top of the screen. Select “Data Sorces” and TSDS – PEIMS tab.

  • Scroll toward the bottom of the screen to verify the current year PEIMS Summer files have been loaded.
    • Current year Preliminary files should be loaded until the Submission is Final. ODS begins accepting preliminary files in September of each new school year – even if any PEIMS updates are not finalized in the extract.
    • File center accepts
      •  PEIMS TSDS interchange files (prefered) extracted from the SIS or eDM (zipped or unzipped)
      • XML or CSV retrieve data from TSDS PEIMS Data Mart
  • BEST PRACTICE: Keeping data current is key to accurate reports. Please contact your local OnDataSuite Administrator if a “fresh” file needs to be loaded. 
  • Load multiple Summer PEIMS files, if desired…
    • One for “Edits Only” – for PEIMS TSDS Business Rule review
    • Another for end users – “Load Data Only”
  • The number of “Weeks” refers to the reporting cycle for which data has been loaded. Example, at any time during the 5th 6 weeks period, a file can be loaded and marked as Prelim: 5 weeks
  • Click on the file to open and ensure Interchange Student Discipline complex types have “OK“, meaning that the discipline portions (data) of this Summer PEIMS file are loaded.
