    • If Grand Total looks significantly less than prior year or significantly higher, be sure to check the TSDS rules for Fatal edits (40100-0190 and 40100-0191) which will also impact whether students are on this report or not.
    • Reference Fall PEIMS Data Reconciliation and Validation section for methods to identify students potentially missing from the report.

IMPORTANT Data Validation Check on this report:  Tier 1 – Census Block (Geoid) Reported – Lowest Tier Default*

  • Reminder from the SCE Rules and Guidelines:
    • Economically disadvantaged students’ census block groups are determined from student’s home address.
      • If a Texas census block group (starts with 48xxx) is not identified for an address (ie. new addresses/developments) and the student meets SCE eligibility, they will be assigned the lowest funded tier weight (0.225) (Tier 1) Reference Fatal Edit 40100-0224

Only Texas (starting with 48) Census Block Group numbers are Mapped to Census Tiers for funding in the Census Block Tier Mapping posted by TEA.
Reconciliations with TEA to Final SOF confirms students that report Census Block Group numbers from Arkansas (05), Louisiana (22), New Mexico (35) or Oklahoma (40) are NOT included in the Tier 1 default funding.

BEST PRACTICE:  Drill into the total and review the Census Block Group number on each student in the list.

  • Tips on analyzing :
    • Sort the Census Block Group.
    • Export to Excel, set filters on export file and identify how many different Census Block Group numbers are listed to investigate.  (Check it with the TSDS Census Block Tool and/or on the Census Block Tier Mapping for 2024)
    • Verify student address and 23-24 Census Block Group number has been updated.
    • Valid Texas Census Block Group numbers begin with 48, any other leading digits are out of state numbers or errors and will not be funded.

Tier 5 Auto Assigned Categories:

  1. Homeless students do not report a Census Block Group number.  TEA automatically assigns them to Tier 5 for SCE funding.

BEST PRACTICE:  Crosscheck Total Tier 5  Homeless student count with Fall Dashboard Homeless Status Total. Reference Fall PEIMS Data Reconciliation and Validation section for methods to identify students potentially missing from the report. 

  • Homeless: student’s assigned Tier 5 funding effective 2020-2021 based upon meeting all 5 criteria:

2. For each student who resides in a residential placement facility in a district in which the student’s parent or legal guardian does not residea district is entitled to an annual allotment equal to the basic allotment multiplied by 0.2 or, if the student is educationally disadvantaged, 0.275.

  • Students included in this SCE funding count:
