Student Listing for 2022–23 Local Remote Learning ADA Funding Eligibility Now Available
The Student Listing for 2022–23 Local Remote Learning ADA Funding Eligibility in the Texas Education Agency Login (TEAL) Accountability application is intended to help LEAs determine funding eligibility for students who may participate in a local remote learning program. The responsibility for making the final determination of a student’s eligibility for funding lies with the LEA. Attendance data is auditable.
Due to data limitations, the student listing provides enrollment information based on the School Year 2022–23 Tracking Reporting, 2021–22 STAAR performance outcomes, and 2021–22 attendance. TEA does not have access to course grade data, unexcused absence counts, or any local beginning of year (BOY) assessment results, so LEAs can use the list provided by TEA as a starting point but must independently determine and document student eligibility for remote ADA.
