Uniform Grants Guidance/EDGAR Resource:
Texas Education Agency (TEA)
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is analyzing the new EDGAR/Uniform Grants Guidance to determine how the new regulations will change existing policies and procedures. TEA will periodically issue information to prepare grantees for the change in regulatory governance.
The TEA webpage, designated below, includes a variety of resources and information related to the new EDGAR/Uniform Grants Guidance.

TEA TRAINING OPPORTUNITY:
TEA conducted training on the impact of the new EDGAR/Uniform Grants Guidance at selected education service center locations across the state in March and April, 2015.
ESC-20 hosted a TEA cluster site training in San Antonio on April 16, 2015.
The training was available onsite at ESC-20, as well as via webinar.
TEA staff presented the latest information on the new Uniform Grants Guidance and the updated Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR). The training focused on how the new regulations will be implemented at TEA and how changes in policy will affect ESCs and LEAs (independent school districts and open-enrollment charter schools).
RECORDED SESSION FROM 4/16/15:
Due to technical issues, the sound quality of this recording is not ideal. The audio in some portions of the recording are more clear than in other portions. Also, two portions of the presentation failed to record.

The recording begins 30-45 minutes into the session during an audience discussion activity. You will only hear background noise in the beginning. Please continue to listen because the presenters will begin speaking in about 1 1/2 minutes. The second portion of the training failed to record between slides 119-128. Eventually the audio is restored.

RECORDED SESSION FROM 4/22/15:
Since the recording of the 4/16/15 session is not ideal, the participants enrolled in that session received information via email on May 11, 2015 regarding how to access a recording of the last TEA Cluster Site Training held 4/22/15 at ESC-07. This recording is not only better quality, but includes updated information from the previous sessions.
