Subject: 2016–2017 Supplemental Funding for Prekindergarten – Updated Payment Amounts

The 2016–2017 payments scheduled to process this month for supplemental prekindergarten services have been updated from the letter posted October 6, 2016. The links at the end of this letter provide spreadsheets with the updated allotments. All allotments increased slightly from the previous notice except for a few districts whose allotments remain unchanged. The payments are based on an allotment of $153 per 2015–2016 prekindergarten student in average daily attendance.

Coding and Reporting Prekindergarten Supplemental Funding: 
When recording these revenues, school districts must use fund code 199, and charter schools must use fund code 420. Please report supplemental prekindergarten revenues as object code 5826, 5827, or 5828. These object codes are locally defined for reporting revenues from other state programs. Once they are reported to us, PEIMS converts them to object code 5829. Funds must be used to provide prekindergarten services consistent with the provisions of Texas Education Code, Chapter 29, Subchapter E.

Please contact Amy Copeland at 512-463-8732 or amy.copeland@tea.texas.gov for questions related to the funding amounts.

 

Sincerely,

 Al McKenzie
Director of State Funding
