SUBJECT: 2019–2020 Annual Survey of Children in Local Residential Facilities for the Neglected/Delinquent (SC9000)
The 2019–2020 Annual Survey of Children in Local Residential Facilities for the Neglected/Delinquent (SC9000) is now available in TEA’s eGrants system. The purpose of the survey is to provide the US Department of Education (USDE) with accurate information on the location and number of children who live in residential facilities for the neglected or delinquent.
USDE needs this information to calculate school year 2019–2020 Title I, Part A, and Title I, Part D, Subpart 2 federal funding allocations for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
Applicable local educational agencies (LEAs) must complete and submit the SC9000 in eGrants by 5:00 p.m. Central Time, December 5, 2018.
LEAs that must respond to the 2019–2020 SC9000 survey are those that have a residential facility for neglected or delinquent children located within their geographic boundaries or provide for the education of students who reside in that residential facility. The 2019–2020 SC9000 is available only to those LEAs.

Exclude from the October 2018 caseload count any foster child under the conservatorship of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
- As applicable, provide an explanation if the October 2018 residential caseload increased or decreased by 25 students, as compared to the October 2017 residential caseload reported in the LEA’s 2018–2019 SC9000 certified submission.
