Deadline February 1: Changes to Special Education SSA Membership

This is a reminder applies only to LEAs planning a change to their special education shared services arrangements (SSAs) for 2017–2018.

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 any of the following changes to your LEA’s special education SSA:

  • Your LEA is participating a newly-formed SSA.
  • Your LEA is joining an existing SSA.
  • Your LEA is leaving an SSA and becoming independent.
  • There is a change in fiscal agents for an existing SSA.
  • There is any membership configuration change to an existing 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 any of the configuration changes described above, you must notify TEA Division of Federal Fiscal Compliance and Reporting by February 1, 2017, in order for the agency to finalize IDEA-B planning amounts for the 2017‑2018 school year.

The February 1, 2017, 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 20172018.
