Why are Census Tiers different this year when the Census Block did not change?

TEA evaluates Census Tiers for Compensatory Education funding annually and rebalances the assigned Census Block Groups. This may or may not change your Census Tier Funding year to year as reflected on the HB3 Compensatory Education Report.

The ODS report uses the latest published TEA Census Tier Mapping for the respective school year. https://tea.texas.gov/texas-schools/general-information/census-block-group-tools (right side under State Funding)

  • If you are uncertain about the Census Tier mapping change for a Census Block Group, look up the Census Block Group in the respective TEA Census Tier Mapping resource.

To review your Census Block Group mapping to Census Tiers, reference the Bookmark – LEA Cloud Sharing Census Block Group by Census Tiers report. This should assist with identifying what Census Block Groups have changed.
