TDTIMS for 2020-21 School Year is Delayed until Further Notice. There has been discussion of a possible springtime data collection should LEAs return to more normal operations statewide.
You can find instructions and other helpful information here.
The information submitted in the Annual TDTIMS Report includes data that are used in the transportation funding formula. Specifically students transported must be assigned to stops, runs and routes in order to calculate site characteristics such as the average distance to school for transported students.
If computerized TIMS Routes do not accurately reflect current bus routing operations, then your transportation budget ratings will be incorrect. If TIMS data is incomplete or not updated, state funding could be negatively impacted.
