The 2016–2017 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 only to the following applicants:

•    South Texas independent school district
•    Windham School District
•    Texas Juvenile Justice Department
•    Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired

TEA will use this submission of the SC5050 to determine the applicant's eligibility and planning amounts for No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA, Part B) federal programs for the LEAs listed above, and for open-enrollment charter schools to request indirect cost rates.
SC5050 Deadline: April 7, 2016
 

To ensure eligibility and planning amounts are determined for the applicant, the SC5050 must be certified and submitted in eGrants no later than April 7, 2016.
