TEA is implementing a new monitoring program specifically designed to focus on ensuring the LEA's compliance and accountability related to the supplemental state allotment programs listed below. These programs have mandated direct expenditure requirements:
- Special Education: 52%
- Compensatory Education (SCE): 52%
- Bilingual Education: 52%
- Career and Technical Education (CTE): 58%
- Gifted and Talented Education (GT): 55%
- High School Education: 100%
It is important to understand that compliance is not based solely on spending the correct percentage on direct costs as outlined above. LEAs must also spend appropriately according to allowable use of funds. If the LEA meets the correct percentage but the expenditures were for unallowable costs, the LEA is out of compliance.
