Statewide Indirect Cost Rate Proposal and Additional Costs Workbook Training

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is collaborating with regional Education Service Centers (ESCs) to provide three training opportunities across the state for school districts interested in learning more about completing the request for an indirect cost rate for 2019–2020.

Title of Training Sessions:

Completing the Indirect Cost Rate Proposal (ICRP) Additional Costs Workbook (ACW)

Objective: The goal is to provide ESC staff and school district administrators with information and guidance regarding TEA’s Indirect Cost Rate processes, procedures, and forms, and to assist school districts in meeting upcoming deadlines.

Description: This training session is designed to inform school districts of the upcoming timeline for ICRP activities and updated procedures. School districts that want an indirect cost rate for school year 2019–2020 must submit an ICRP ACW by January 18, 2019. This training is intended to assist school districts in meeting this deadline. Staff from TEA will discuss the ICRP ACW procedures and timelines, offer examples and explanations, walk districts through the worksheets and required data, and allow time for specific questions.

Dates/Times/Locations:  Three ESCs will be hosting training on the following dates:

  • November 30, 2018, from 1:00–4:00 PM, at ESC Region 6
    in Huntsville Register
  • December 6, 2018, from 9:00 AM–noon, at ESC Region 18
    in Midland Register
  • December 7, 2018, from 9:00 AM–noon, at ESC Region 1
    in Edinburg Register

Target Audience: Training is open to all independent school districts, particularly Business Managers and other staff involved in completing the 2019–2020 ICRP ACW to request an indirect cost rate for the next school year. Important Note: this training is applicable only to school districts and not charter schools, since charter schools’ indirect cost rates are calculated in a different manner.

Registration Information: TEA staff will make the presentations on location at the hosting ESCs which are encouraged to video stream, videotape, or record and make available to school district staff who are unable to attend.  To register to attend in person or to access the available resources remotely, LEA staff should contact the respective hosting ESC for information.

Training Materials

The PowerPoint, forms, and other resources will be available on TEA’s Indirect Cost Rates webpage.
