Summary: This report provides a “what if” preview of next year HB3 Student Census Tier and Residential Placement data related for compensatory education funding. The report is based upon the latest year Fall PEIMS Census Block Group and the next year TEA Census Tier Mapping regarding State Compensatory Education (SCE) Program from TEA. 

*Recommended timeframe for report relevancy is April – September after TEA has released the next year Census Tier Mapping and prior to LEA updating next year Census Block Group for Fall PEIMS reporting.   (see references below).

Usage: Use report to preview changes in the TEA Census Block Group Mapping to Census Tiers for preliminary next year budget planning and summary of finance template funding projections for state compensatory education.   

NOTE:  For 2022-2023 preview using 2021-2022 Fall PEIMS, the reporting may be very skewed due to the 2022-2023 Census Block Groups increasing from 15, 811 to 18,638 and the entire state Census Block Groups were renumbered.  Reference State Compensatory Education (SCE) Census Block Groups 2022-2023
