Data Request Form for New Open-Enrollment Charter Schools

Word Version

The purpose of this letter is to inform open-enrollment charter schools opening for the first time in fall 2012 that the SC5010 No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Data Request Form for Federal Funding has been made available in eGrants as of September 4, 2012. The SC5010 is an eGrants form that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) uses to determine a charter school’s eligibility and planned funding amounts for the grant programs included in the 2012-2013 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant Application. A new open-enrollment charter school must be open and providing instruction to students before it may submit the SC5010.

Accessing the SC5010 through eGrants

The SC5010 is available online through the eGrants system. Access to the TEA Secure Environment (TEASE) is required to submit grant forms and applications through eGrants. To request access to eGrants, visit http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/forms/tease/egrants_ext.htm.

Log on to eGrants through TEASE (https://seguin.tea.state.tx.us/apps/app_list.asp) by entering your username and password, and proceed as follows:

1. From the Application List, select eGrants.
2. Open the dropdown list titled “Available Grant Programs in eGrants.”
3. From the dropdown list, select the entry titled “2012-2013 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant Application.”
4. Select “2012-2013 NCLB Data Request Form for Federal Funding.”

Completing the SC5010

The SC5010 is due to be submitted through the eGrants system no later than November 1, 2012.

To complete the SC5010, the new open-enrollment charter school must report actual enrollment data collected on a specific date (no later than November 1, 2012) during the 2012–2013 school year. The enrollment data is reported by students’ resident public school district. Applicants are advised to thoroughly review data for accuracy and to ensure that auditable documentation is on file to support the data reported. The information submitted on the SC5010 form is binding. No changes will be allowed after the form is submitted.

The following table shows how a new open-enrollment charter school with an enrollment of 430 students whose residences fall within three different public school districts would categorize data for submission on the SC5010.

Applying for NCLB Grant Funds

After the new open-enrollment charter school has completed and submitted the SC5010, TEA will send follow-up information directly to the charter school by certified mail specifying how the school should proceed to apply for NCLB grant funds through the 2012-2013 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant Application.
