SPP and SPEARS moving from TEASE to TEAL

TEASE is the online application for State Performance Plan (SPP) data submission. This application is migrating to the TEAL application.

Important to know for the 2017-18 data submission:

  • SPP will move from TEASE to TEAL on March 15, 2018
  • Users must either link their existing TEASE account to their TEAL account or create a new TEAL account and link it to their existing TEASE account
  • After March 15, users who have not linked their TEASE accounts will be locked out of SPP

See message below from TEA:

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is in the process of migrating to a new secure environment, TEA Login (TEAL), which replaces our older system, TEASE. TEAL provides greater, more flexible, secure access to TEA applications. Eventually, all TEA applications will use TEAL. For an overview of TEAL and TEASE, go to http://www.tea.state.tx.us/webappaccess/overview.htm.

This message has everything you need to begin using TEAL (TEA Login) to access SPEARS. Your primary takeaways/action items from the details below are:

  1. Become familiar with TEAL and Register for a TEAL account if you don’t already have one
  2. Link your TEASE account(s) to your TEAL account
  3. Use TEAL going forward to access your TEA applications

Once you have linked a TEASE account to TEAL, you will no longer be able to login to TEASE directly; you must go through TEAL.

If you already have a TEAL account and have linked the TEASE account you use to access SPEARS, you can safely ignore this message. You must have a valid TEAL account and link your TEASE account to continue using SPEARS after February 15, 2018.

 Register for a TEAL account:

  1. Go to https://tealprod.tea.state.tx.us/
  2. Click “Request New User Account” near the top of the page
  3. Enter the requested information in the required fields
  4. Click “Submit”

Link your TEASE account(s):

  1. Log in to TEAL using the account created above: https://tealprod.tea.state.tx.us/
  2. Select “Link TEASE Accounts” from the Self-Service Menu
  3. Click the “Link a TEASE account” button
  4. You will be prompted to enter your TEASE User ID, password, and an optional account description
  5. Click “Submit” and wait for a message that the request was successfully submitted
  6. Now click on “Access Applications” under the Self-Service Menu (or select the “Applications” tab if it is open)
  7. Click the “Refresh Links” button near the top right of the page
  8. You should now see your linked TEASE account on the right under the “TEASE User Accounts” heading—Please use this link to access TEASE going forward
  9. You may repeat steps 3 through 8 for as many TEASE accounts as you would like to link to TEAL

Note: Once you have linked a TEASE account to TEAL, you will no longer be able to login to TEASE directly; you must go through TEAL.

Accessing your TEA Applications:

  1. Log in to TEAL using your TEAL account: https://tealprod.tea.state.tx.us/
  2. Hint: You may want to add this URL to your favorites list.
  3. Until February 15, 2018, your old TEASE account which you linked to TEAL will be listed on the right-hand side of the TEAL menu page. Click on that link and it will take you to the normal TEASE page where you will select the application you want to access.
  4. After February 15, 2018, when you log in to TEAL, the SPEARS application will move to the left side of the TEAL menu page under Applications. If you had other applications that you accessed using the same TEASE account (for example, EDIT+) you will still use the TEASE link on the right-hand side of the page to access those applications.
