TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED:

SUBJECT:        New Special Collections Report Available—SC5050 Request for Federal Funding & Indirect Cost Rate for Charter Schools for the 2015–2016 School Year

For the 2015–2016 school year, TEA has developed a single special collections report to replace the SC5010--NCLB Data Request Form for Federal Funding and the SC5011–Special Education Charter Data Request. This data collection requirement applies to open-enrollment charter schools, special local educational agencies (LEAs), and state schools only. It does not apply to independent school districts.

The 2015–2016 Request for Federal Funding & Indirect Cost Rate for Charter Schools (SC5050) is now available in eGrants. The SC5050 is an eGrants special collections report that applies to the following entities:

  • ·        Open-enrollment charter schools
  • ·        South Texas ISD
  • ·        Windham School District
  • ·        Texas Juvenile Justice Department
  • ·        Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired
  • ·        Texas School for the Deaf

TEA will use this submission of the SC5050 to determine eligibility and planning amounts for applicable No Child Left Behind (NCLB) federal programs and indirect cost rates, if requested. TEA will open the SC5050 again in August 2015 to collect data for NCLB and special education significant expansion consideration.

SC5050 Deadline: April 7, 2015

To ensure eligibility and planning amounts are determined for the applicant, the SC5050 must be certified and submitted no later than April 7, 2015.

Capturing Actual Enrollment Figures

The SC5050 form requests specific categories of actual enrollment data as of a specific date in the 2014–2015 school year. The applicant chooses the date, which cannot be later than the April 7, 2015, due date of the SC5050. Projected enrollment data is unacceptable

The information submitted on the SC5050 form is binding. No changes will be allowed after the form is submitted.  Applicants are advised to ensure data entered has been thoroughly reviewed for accuracy and that auditable documentation is on file to support the data reported.

The required submissions are conducted via the eGrants application system. A TEA Secure Environment (TEASE) username and password is required for each individual who will be entering and/or certifying data.
