Re: 2009–10 Optional Flexible School Day Program (OFSDP)

To the Administrator Addressed:

The OFSDP is a program that your district or charter school may offer to provide flexible hours and days of attendance for students in grades 9–12 who are at risk of not graduating, are participating in an approved early college high school plan, or are attending a campus implementing an innovative redesign under a plan approved by the commissioner of education. The program provides your district or charter school with an alternative method of taking attendance. 

To participate in the OFSDP, your district must submit an annual application notifying the Texas Education Agency (TEA) that it plans to participate. The application requires the following information: implementation plan description, staff plans, schedules, and student attendance accounting security procedures and documentation. The TEA will notify each applicant of its approval status to operate an OFSDP.

If you have questions about the program, please contact Kim Rife by telephone at
(512) 463-4809 or by email at kim.rife@tea.state.tx.us.

The rules, application, and attendance guidelines for the OFSDP, as well as sample attendance registers, can be found at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/school.finance/ofsdp.

Sincerely,

 

Lisa Dawn-Fisher, Ph.D.
Deputy Associate Commissioner for School Finance
