NCLB LEA Maintenance of Effort (MOE)


As a condition for receiving its full allocation in any fiscal year, for covered programs under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), a local educational agency (LEA) must maintain its own state and local fiscal effort in accordance with Section 9521, ESEA. This requirement is known as maintenance of effort (MOE).


5/5/2014:  FY 2013 NCLB LEA MOE Determinations - TEA has completed the final NCLB LEA MOE determinations for school year 2012–2013 (Fiscal Year 2013).  Local educational agencies may access their report in the GFFC Reports and Data Collections secure application: 1) Log on to TEASE or TEAL, 2) Select “GFFC Reports and Data Collections.”, 3) Select “NCLB LEA MOE Report” from the Report Title drop-down menu, and 4) Select “2012-2013” from the School Year drop-down menu.  The “Status” column of the determination indicates whether you are compliant or noncompliant.

NCLB LEA Maintenance of Effort (MOE) Guidance Handbook

The NCLB LEA Maintenance of Effort (MOE) Guidance Handbook (PDF 558 KB) provides Texas LEAs with guidance on how to interpret and determine compliance with the NCLB LEA MOE requirement.

NCLB LEA MOE Calculation Tool

TEA has developed an Excel tool for LEAs to use in determining compliance with the NCLB LEA MOE requirement. The calculation performed by the NCLB MOE calculation tool is an estimate only and does not duplicate TEA's exact calculation process. The results of TEA's calculation will be the basis of the final MOE determination.
