How to Join

2. The 7th tab is called "Contracted Services Agreements."

Region 7 strives to provide training that will target areas concerning funding issues, accountability concerns, and compliance to TEA rules and regulations. The accuracy of the district's PEIMS submission is critical and has a dramatic affect on ratings and funding. The lack of training leads to incorrect coding of PEIMS data resulting in loss of eligible funding or a time-consuming TEA audit review. The Funding & Accountability Cooperative provides guidance and valuable information to train district personnel so that your data is recorded and reported as accurately as possible to maximize funding.
