Charter District Audit Cycle 2019-2022

The 2019-2022 open enrollment charter district audit cycle ends on August 31, 2022. The online reporting system (CARtool) used to submit your audit data to the TxSSC will open on April 15, 2022 and must be completed by September 15, 2022. In accordance with TEC 37.108(b)(c), the CARtool is the only accepted method for submission and all submissions must take place prior to the close date of September 15, 2022. Prior to clicking on the submit button in the CARtool districts should print out the audit report for their records and keep a copy of the report, along with any other audit information in accordance with the district record retention policy. Only district Superintendents and/or Superintendent designees will receive login information for the CARtool. Between January and March 2022, The Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC) surveyed all charter districts to verify Superintendent contact information. Between March 21 and April 14, 2022, TxSSC staff will call charter districts that did not respond to the contact verification survey to obtain Superintendent contact information.

On April 15, 2022, The TxSSC will email Superintendents, or their designee,a link and unique access code to the online CARtool. At that time, if the TxSSC has not been able to verify contact information for the Superintendent, the survey link and access code will be sent to the contact listed on the Texas Education Agency website.

**NOTE: If you oversee multiple charter districts, you will receive a unique access code for each TEA district number and need to complete a separate submission for each district.**

Districts may begin reporting audit results any time after receiving the CARtool link and access code. Districts are required to report specified audit results to the TxSSC by September 15, 2022 as required by Texas Education Code 37.108.
