EDGAR and Application-Related Forms
EDGAR requires local educational agencies (LEAs) to request
approval from or provide justification to the state educational agency before taking certain actions
involving grant funds that follow EDGAR. TEA has developed forms for LEAs to use in requesting that
approval or providing justification. See the process described below for
submitting any of the forms.
Activities That Require Prior Approval
Under 2 CFR 200.456, some activities require prior approval. TEA has provided prior approval for the following activities:
- Equitable services to private nonprofit schools that are required, and therefore allowable,
under federal program statute; this includes registration and travel costs
for participating in allowable professional development activities
- Parental involvement activities required, and therefore allowable, under federal program
statute; this includes registration and travel costs for participating in
allowable parent trainings or conferences and required parent
Use these forms as follows:
- Open the form and enter
the subrecipient's county-district number.
- Print a copy of the form, which is already approved.
- Maintain the completed form locally as documentation of the approval. The form must be provided to auditors or monitors upon request.The form is not required to be submitted to TEA.
approvals are retroactive to the beginning date of the grant period as noted on
the subrecipient’s Notice of Grant Award (NOGA) for programs in which the
activity is required/allowable. There is no need to submit individual requests
for approval of these activities.
subrecipient may complete and submit prior approval request forms for other
types of participant support costs, such as travel for school board members to
attend an allowable program training, to TEA on an individual basis.
with any questions regarding this approval.
Other Application-Related Forms
These forms are maintained locally as specified in the application guidelines and instructions and are to be made available to TEA upon request.
Submit these forms, when requested, to justify expenditure of grant funds.
for Submitting Forms or Disclosures (Other Than Application-Related Forms)
For forms that currently require USDE approval because
TEA has not yet been delegated the authority to approve the requests, submit the forms to TEA for consideration. TEA may or may not be able to provide an approval. USDE has
indicated that they are in process of developing policy related to the
requirements and will issue guidance at a later date.
To submit disclosures or other application-related forms
to TEA, download and complete the appropriate form(s) above. Submit the completed form by mail, fax, or
