Applicable NCLB Federal Programs
March 1, 2010
SUBJECT: Special Collections Report – SC5010 NCLB Data Request Form for Federal Funding and 2010-2011 School Year Application Process for Applicable NCLB Federal Programs
TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED:
The SC5010 form requests specific categories of actual enrollment data that will be used to determine the applicant’s eligibility and planning amounts for applicable NCLB federal programs. The actual enrollment data reported is subject to audit by the Texas Education Agency (TEA); therefore, auditable documentation must be on file with the local education agency (LEA) or state school to support the data reported. The enrollment data reported must be actual enrollment as of a specific date. The date selected is solely at the discretion of the LEA or state school. However, for LEAs or state schools that operated in the 2009-2010 school year, the date must be within the 2009-2010 school year and must fall on or before April 30, 2010. Students reported according to a category (e.g., Limited English Proficient, Immigrant, Age Group, etc.) must have been enrolled and must fall into the category specified as of the date selected. For example, if the date chosen by the LEA or state school is April 29, 2010, all students included in the count for the Age 5 to 17 Low Income column must be both low income and 5 to 17 years of age as of April 29, 2010. Projected enrollment data is unacceptable.
The determination of planning amounts for applicable NCLB federal programs is necessary before the applicant can continue the application process. To ensure eligibility and planning amounts are determined for the applicant, the SC5010 form must be submitted no later than April 30, 2010, the submission deadline date. The information submitted on the SC5010 form is binding. No changes will be allowed after the form is submitted. Applicants are advised to ensure that the data entered has been thoroughly reviewed for accuracy. No exceptions to the deadline date or binding requirement are granted.
