TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED:
The 2011-2012 NCLB Data Request Form for Federal Funding (SC5010) has been made available in eGrants as of March 1, 2011. The SC5010 is an eGrants special collection report applicable to the following special local educational agencies (LEAs) and state schools: open-enrollment charter schools, South Texas ISD, Windham School District, Texas Youth Commission, Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, and Texas School for the Deaf. The data reported on the SC5010 is used to determine eligibility and planning amounts for applicable No Child Left Behind (NCLB) federal programs of the 2011-2012 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant Application (SAS#NCLBAA12). Please note that the SC5010 is not applicable to public school districts.
SC5010 – Deadline Date: Friday, April 29, 2011
The SC5010 form requests specific categories of actual enrollment data to be reported by resident public school district as of a specific date in the 2010-2011 school year and no later than April 29, 2011. Projected 2011-2012 enrollment data is unacceptable.
For example, ABC open-enrollment charter school has selected October 26, 2010 as the date to capture actual enrollment figures. On this date, the charter had an actual enrollment of 430 students who resided geographically in 3 different resident public school districts. The applicant has idenitified how to report the 430 students based on the categories of enrollment requested on the SC5010. The applicant certifies to the following on their SC5010 submission:

The information submitted on the SC5010 form is binding. No changes will be allowed after the form is submitted. Applicants are advised to ensure data entered has been thoroughly reviewed for accuracy and that auditable documentation is on file to support the data reported.
