TREx Access Is Open to New Charter Campuses and Sites
Charters now have access to TREx for those campuses/sites to obtain records for students who are being enrolled in the new campus/site. The campus must be activated in AskTED and listed as “Under Construction” for access to be available.
- Use the All In One form to request your new campus number to get the required “Under Construction” status in AskTED. Please note that even though users may request student records through the TREx application, the release of such information will be determined by the school district where the student is currently enrolled.
- Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or click on the TREx Support Portal within the TREx application for any questions.
