Virtual or Hybrid School CDCN Application for School Year 2022-2023

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) will open an application for local educational agencies (LEAs) seeking to pursue a County District Campus Number (CDCN) for a virtual or hybrid school for the upcoming school year. Under Senate Bill 15 (SB 15), 87th Second Called Legislative Session, 2021. LEAs may receive full average daily attendance (ADA) funding for students who attend local remote learning programs that meet the requirements set by SB 15. SB 15 expires on September 1, 2023. The TEA previously released a TAA with SB 15 Guidance on September 9, 2021. The Virtual or Hybrid School CDCN application window will be open from March 24, 2022, through April 29, 2022.


Virtual or Hybrid Program Application

LEAs seeking to operate an SB 15 compliant virtual or hybrid school may apply for a one-year CDCN for the upcoming school year. Under current law, the CDCN will be in effect for one full school year only. In the event that the law is not amended to provide ADA for remote instruction after SB 15 expires, LEAs will be required to return their virtual or hybrid school CDCNs to the Texas Education Agency.

The application is intended to ensure that LEAs are offering an SB 15-compliant program with high-quality virtual or hybrid instruction in place.

At this time, LEAs may apply for a CDCN for three different campus types. They may apply for a K-12th CDCN, a K-8th CDCN, or a 9th -12th CDCN.

The application will be released and posted on the Remote Learning webpage on March 24, 2022.

Please note that charter schools will need to complete an application, and if approved, will request a CDCN through the Charters School Division at the Texas Education Agency.
