I am not quite sure what this has to do with the imports mailing list.  
The Organised Editing Guidelines call for discussing your plans on the 
regional mailing list (which you should do - i did not see anything in 
that direction on talk-pe).  If there is an import involved that should 
also be discussed here but from a quick scan over that page i did not 
see any link to or information about external data other than imagery.  
If what you are planning contains mechanical editing of previously 
imported data - the sentence:

"The data was generated from addresses of existing schools data in Peru 
that was imported into OSM in 2017."

indicates as much - that would need to be discussed under the Automated 
Edits code of conduct, and this would be the right place for that given 
it concerns previously imported data.  But for that you would need to 
show the processed data or the processing algorithm for evaluation - 
preferably both.
