Parent form to complete: If you have previously filled out this form, please disregard. Please help us collect necessary information so that TXVA may receive additional state dollars to benefit our students! TXVA may qualify for additional funding from the state if any of our students meet certain guidelines. The additional funding, known as the Compensatory Education Allotment, is used to provide supplemental services to students who are at-risk or not performing at an appropriate level. Complete the Form for Compensatory Education Funding Qualification and submit online using the link below. (All information is kept confidential and used only to see if your child or children meet the eligibility guidelines that will enable the district to receive the extra funding.) The district is automatically eligible for this funding if you receive food stamps or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). Otherwise, the district may qualify for this funding depending upon your income and family size. (Note: A separate form must be completed for each TXVA student enrolled). Click here to complete the online form.
