Description

The 055 Contracted Instructional Staff record identifies the total Contracted Instructional Staff FTEs by Program Intent Code at the district/campus level.  TEA must be able to compute the total instructional (Function 11) staff FTEs by Program Intent Code.  This information supplements that information which is reported for employees reported on the 060 Payroll Data record. 

Business Rules

INPUT-RECORD-TYPE-CODE (E0755) identifies the type of data on a PEIMS data submission record.

DISTRICT-ID (E0212) indicates the district identification number registered with the Texas Education Agency.

DISTRICT-ID on the 055 Contracted Instructional Staff records must match the value for DISTRICT-ID on the LEA 010 District record.

CAMPUS-ID (E0266) indicates the unique campus identification number registered with the Texas Education Agency. It is the linking of DISTRICT-ID with the campus identification number.

An instructional campus: 1) has an assigned administrator, 2) has enrolled students who are counted for average daily attendance, 3) has assigned instructional staff, 4) receives federal and/or state and/or local funds as its primary support, 5) provides instruction in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), 6) has one or more grade groups in the range from early education through grade 12, and 7) is not a program for students enrolled in another public school.

An alternative instructional unit: 1) is an instructional site, center, program, or arrangement that is not governed by an individual campus organization, and 2) does not meet the above standard definition of an instructional campus.

PROGRAM-INTENT-CODE (E0320) identifies the cost of instruction and other services that are directed toward a particular need of a specific set of students. The intent (the student group toward which the instructional or other service is directed) determines the PROGRAM-INTENT-CODE, not the demographic makeup of the students served.

TOTAL-CONTRACTED-INSTR-STAFF-FTEs (E0980) is a standard measurement of the portion of professional contracted instructional staff, expressed as a multiple of the standard work day, such as 7.7 FTEs.

Round up to the nearest hundredth.

For example, 9.721 FTEs is reported as "00973". These staff are paid from function 11 only. Such staff are contracted teachers, speech therapists, occupational therapists, and any other professional contracted staff working in a classroom on a dedicated basis.

Reporting Requirements

PEIMS collects financial information on each district’s professional contracted instructional staff. These staff are paid from function 11 only. Such staff are contracted teachers, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and any other professional staff working in a classroom on a dedicated basis. See the Resource Guide, Financial Accounting and Reporting Module, Section 1.4.3. The total FTEs by campus, with program intent code, are reported.

One 055 Contracted Instructional Staff record is submitted for each campus that has professional contracted instructional staff. Additional 055 Contracted Instructional Staff records are reported if more than one PROGRAM-INTENT-CODE is used to pay the staff.

When calculating contracted instructional staff FTEs, the following items must be considered: 1) the percent of the day worked (number of hours worked divided by the number of work hours in the standard day), 2) the percent of days per week worked (number of days worked divided by 5), and 3) the percentage of weeks worked (the number of weeks worked divided by the number of weeks in the work year). For example, Mrs. Jones is hired on a contracted instructional staff basis to teach the tuba to three tuba players. Her contract specifies that she will work two hours each Monday and each Friday for the entire school year. Her FTE is 0.25 (two hours worked divided by the eight hour work day in the district) multiplied by 0.40 (two days divided by five days) multiplied by 1.0 (36 weeks worked divided by the 36 week instructional year), for a reported FTE of 0.10.

Contracted instructional staff are not regular classroom teachers who have signed a contract with a district, nor are they shared services arrangement employees. Rather, these are instructors for whom the district has entered into a contractual agreement with some outside organization. Through the contract, the outside organization has committed to supplying instructional staff for the district. They are never employees of the reporting school district.

Special Reporting Requirements

None.
