The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has calculated 2021–2022 preliminary compliance reviews for Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Part B (IDEA-B) local educational agency (LEA) maintenance of effort (MOE). Please use the following steps to find your LEA’s preliminary review in the GFFC Reports and Data Collections secure application: 

  1. Log on to TEA Login (TEAL). 
  2. Select “GFFC Reports and Data Collections.” 
  3. Select your LEA’s name or county-district number (CDN). 
  4. From the Report Title drop-down menu, select “IDEA-B LEA MOE Compliance Review.” 
  5. From the School Year drop-down menu, select “2021–2022.” 

TEA has also released the 2021–2022 Exceptions/Adjustment Workbook, which is available in the GFFC Reports and Data Collections secure application and on the IDEA-B LEA MOE page of the TEA website. LEAs must use the workbook if they choose to respond to TEA. 

LEA Review of TEA’s Preliminary IDEA-B LEA MOE Compliance Review 

As described in the “To the Administrator Addressed” letter dated 3/2/23, LEAs should review their preliminary compliance review and compare it to their own internal MOE calculations. TEA has published a calculation tool on the IDEA-B LEA MOE page of the TEA website so LEAs can make these calculations. 

LEA Response 

Once your LEA has made its comparison, select one of the following four options for response: 

  • Option 1: Accept TEA’s results. 
  • Option 2: Respond to TEA by submitting exceptions and/or voluntary reduction. 
  • Option 3: Respond to TEA by requesting a recalculation. 
  • Option 4: Respond to TEA by submitting an alternate local calculation methodology. 

Details about these options and step-by-step instructions are given in this attachment. Please note that Option 1 requires no further action on your part, while the remaining three options require you to submit documentation to and/or communicate with TEA by April 7, 2023

Do Not Submit Refunds 

If the preliminary compliance review shows that your LEA is not in compliance with the IDEA-B LEA MOE requirement, your LEA may owe a refund to TEA. TEA will notify your LEA in the final compliance review if your LEA owes a refund and provide additional instructions at that time. Please do not submit refunds to TEA based on the preliminary compliance review. 


Please refer to the IDEA-B LEA MOE page of the TEA website for further information and additional resources regarding IDEA-B LEA MOE.
