The Performance Reporting site presents a great deal of financial information; however it does not depict all the financial data available either at the Texas Education Agency (TEA) or from various national web sites. The purpose of this page is to provide links to other sites within the TEA and to national sites that present additional financial information about Texas public school districts. This page is divided into two sections: Other TEA Financial Sites and National Sites.
Note: The definitions for individual financial items differ across these sites. Readers should review any documentation that is available at each site before making any comparisons among the information presented. Furthermore, the Division of Performance Reporting neither endorses nor is responsible for the content of web sites other than our own. Links to these resources are provided solely as a convenience to our users.
Other TEA Financial Sites
For other reports showing actual financial data (what was actually received and spent versus what was planned or expected) see Financial Reports-Actual Reports, on the Standard Reports Home Page.
Topics at this site include State Funding and School Financial Audits. Within State Funding users can select links to the Foundation School Program, Bonds, Facilities Funding and Standards, Chapter 41 Wealth Equalization, Charter Schools, Minimum Salary Requirements, School Transportation, and Other School Finance Topics. Within School Financial Audits users can select to see various documents on line including the TEA Financial Accountability System Resource Guide.
The Division of Performance Reporting submits data on an annual or semiannual basis to a number of federal agencies and education associations. The reports produced with these data are not available from TEA; however the sites listed below contain these reports and/or links to the agencies and associations which show data state-by-state or aggregated to the regional or national level. While the information found at these sites often includes financial data, these national sites also include non-financial (also referred to as non-fiscal) data. In many cases these sites make the data available for downloading.
