Region 7 strives to provide training that will target areas concerning funding issues, accountability concerns, and compliance with TEA rules and regulations. The accuracy of the district's PEIMS submission is critical and has a dramatic effect 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.
