Charter Schools - Governance
This page contains information about board member and officer training and the Annual Governance Reporting Form.
Board Member and Officer Training
The requirements for charter holder board member and school officer training can be found in Texas Education Code (TEC) §12.123 and in Commissioner's Rules.
Annual Governance Reporting Form
NEW - 10/22/2013 - Annual Governance Reporting Clarification - The Charter School Tracking System currently asks that charters supply the web address of their daily financials. Instead, charters should provide the web address of the page on the school's website where the charter's statement of activities, or income statement, from its annual financial and compliance report is located.
The 2013-2014 Annual Governance Reporting Form for Open-Enrollment Charter Schools is required to be submitted yearly through the electronic Charter School Tracking System (CSTS) and is no longer accepted in paper format. The CSTS application is available through the Texas Education Agency Login (TEAL).
Once you have a TEAL account, you will be able to request access to CSTS (if you have not already done so). Each charter school is required to establish two individual/separate TEAL accounts, one individual account for the Charter Data Entry User role to enter the required information and one individual account for the Charter Approver role for the superintendent to approve and submit the forms to the TEA. CSTS is now available for charters to enter and submit their governance information.
More information and instructions may be found in the To the Charter School Administrator Addressed letter posted on September 23, 2013.
