SSA Membership Change Notification Due to TEA by February 1, 2016

From TEA Division of Federal Fiscal Compliance and Reporting on 1/6/2016:

This is a reminder of an upcoming special education deadline that applies only to LEAs planning a change to their special education shared services arrangements (SSAs) for 2016–2017.

If you are not making a change to your LEA’s SSA, no notification to TEA is required.

Special Education SSA Configuration Changes
Notify TEA if you are making either of the following changes to your LEA’s SSA:
• Your LEA is participating in a new special education SSA.
• There is a membership configuration change to an existing special education SSA.

Once TEA receives your notification, the agency will send you further information on fiscal-related deadlines and requirements.

Notification Deadline
If you are making either of the configuration changes described above, you must notify TEA by February 1, 2016, in order for the agency to finalize IDEA-B planning amounts for the 2016 2017 school year.
The February 1, 2016, deadline is final and will not be extended. An LEA that fails to submit its notification by that deadline will not be permitted to implement changes to its SSA membership for 2016–2017.

Refer to the Special Education—Shared Services Arrangement (SSA) Procedures for further information regarding this requirement.
