Each LEA with a Residential Facility within its boundaries or jurisdiction, in which students with disabilities reside, must validate the data collection by the initial deadline specified by the TEA, as outlined in the Texas Education Data Standards (TEDS). The RF Tracker application will remain open for data entry after the initial deadline, as LEAs are required to maintain current and accurate records in the system. LEAs must validate and complete the RF tracker submission by the final deadline, as specified by the TEA.
For LEAs reporting RF Tracker data for the first time during the first time, additional guidance regarding RF Tracker data can be found on the Special Education in Residential Facilities on the TEA's webpage.
