Update on TSDS studentGPS® Dashboards

Subject: Update on TSDS studentGPS® Dashboards 
Category: Information
Next Steps:  Share with appropriate staff


The purpose of this letter is to inform local education agencies (LEAs) that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) will no longer be hosting or supporting the Texas Student Data System (TSDS) studentGPS® Dashboards after March 2, 2020. 

TEA is currently in the process of upgrading the Texas Education Data Standards (TEDS) to align with a more current version of the national Ed-Fi data standards. In order to provide maximum flexibility to LEAs and leverage the move to the new data standards, TEA has made the difficult decision to no longer host the Dashboards.

We appreciate the support of education service center (ESC) and LEA teams that collaborated with the TEA TSDS team over the past six years on this project. 

If you have specific questions about the decommissioning of the Dashboards, please contact our support staff at TSDSCustomerSupport@tea.texas.gov
