See important information from Linda Raney regarding evacuees enrolling in your district.

Region 12 is receiving more calls and emails this morning as students are showing up to enroll at districts in Region 12.  The link below is the only guidance I have received from TEA.  They have assured me there is a To the Administrator Addressed letter on the way.

See the link below for Frequently Asked Questions…



Be sure to keep a list of any students enrolling, in case TEA activates a Crisis Code.



You can look any incoming students up in the Unique ID System.



  1.   What student identification number should be used for evacuees enrolling in public school?

District staff should enter the student’s identification information (name, date of birth, and student ID number) submitted on the enrollment application into the PID/PET databases to find the student’s existing identification number. Do not give the student a new identification number when one already exists; doing so will create a second unique PID entry, which will cause a PID error to be displayed on your district’s PID/PET discrepancy report. If there is no Texas public school data history for the student, your district will have to enroll the student using the information on the student enrollment application until you can obtain records from the prior school verifying the provided information.



Below are some contact resources for guidance.
