The Deployment Readiness Checklists will help you prepare your organization to deploy TSDS or to support others in their deployment.
Some local education agencies (LEAs—Texas school districts and charter schools) will only deploy TSDS PEIMS, while other will deploy both PEIMS and the studentGPS® Dashboards. Early adopter LEAs will begin deploying TSDS in the 2013/14 school year; the remaining Texas LEAs will roll on in three stages over the following three years.
LEAs should find their assigned deployment stage, and use the relevant checklists to make sure that their organization will be ready in time for their stage.
The checklists lay out step-by-step tasks across the following categories that are recommended for a successful deployment:
- Organizational Readiness
- Training Readiness
- Technical Readiness
- Support Readiness
Please note: to be successful, it is important that you work closely with other TSDS Champions in your region or TSDS Stewards in your LEA to stay coordinated, as some of these tasks will be performed collaboratively.
