Annual Financial Reports
Each year, charter schools, education service centers, and school districts must have their annual financial and compliance report audited by an independent auditor. The resulting annual financial and compliance report must then be submitted to TEA for review.
Texas Education Code (TEC) requires a depository contract between a school district or charter holder and any bank into which state funds are deposited. School district depository contracts are to be renewed or extended every two years. Charter schools are required to file depository contract information annually by November 1st.
Charter schools, education service centers, and school districts are required to submit their annual financial and compliance report in electronic format. The electronic format submission consists of two files: an Adobe Acrobat© Portable Document Format (PDF) file and a GASB data text file (the text file is not required from charter schools). In addition, most charter schools and school districts are required to submit their state compensatory education district and campus improvement plans in PDF.
Fiscal Year Start Date Change
The fiscal year of a school district begins on July 1 or September 1, as determined by the board of trustees of the district. In order to change the fiscal year start date, districts must file with TEA a Notification of Intent to Change the Fiscal Year Start Date form.
