ESSA Program Compliance

TEA's ESSA program compliance functions are provided primarily by the Federal Program Compliance Division (FPC), which administers most programs of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). FPC is a division of the Department of Grant Compliance and Administration (GCA).

COVID-19 and Federal Grant Funds

All information related to COVID-19 and federal grant funds will be consolidated and posted on the GCA page of the TEA website, including an FAQ related to federal grant funds and how they may be used in regard to COVID-19. 

All TEA guidance related to COVID-19 is posted first on the (COVID-19) Support and Guidance page of the agency’s website. Refer to that page for additional information from TEA regarding COVID-19 and its impact on Texas K-12 schools and students.
