Members of Special Education SSAs:

If you are a member of a special education shared services arrangement (SSA), you will not have access to the grant application. Your Fiscal Agent completes the grant application on your behalf. You are welcome to attend this session to develop an awareness of these topics, even though you will not be completing the application yourself. You will learn about some data that you must provide to your Fiscal Agent to facilitate the completion of the application.

TEAL Access:

TEAL access is required to access the grant application. If you do not have this access, please refer to TEA's Secure Applications website to request access to eGrants, if appropriate.

If you do not have access to eGrants, the workshop will still be beneficial even though you will not be able to access the application during the workshop.

Recommended Credit Hours: CPAs and TASBO-certified participants, who attend in person, may earn approximately 5 credit hours.
