Launch of 2018–19 Student & Private School Applications for the IEA Program

The application for students to participate in the Individualized Education Account (IEA) Program for the 2018–19 school year is now open.
  • Applications for students to participate in the IEA Program for the 2018–19 school year (Aug. 1, 2018–July 31, 2019) must be received by the department by 3 p.m. CDT on March 30.
  • Renewal applications for students currently enrolled in the IEA Program must be received by the department by 3 p.m. CDT on June 1.
  • Applications for private schools to participate in the IEA Program for the 2018–19 school year (Aug. 1, 2018–July 31, 2019) will now be accepted year-round. Current participating schools must annually apply to participate in the IEA Program. Schools are encouraged to submit the applications early in order to ensure the school name is added to the list of approved schools before the start of the 2018–19 school year.
The department will not review applications that are received by the department after the deadline has passed. If you have any questions, please contact the IEA team at (615) 253–3781 or IEA.Questions@tn.gov.

 

Expense Report Summary

The expense report summary for quarter two of the 2017-18 school year is now posted on the IEA web page (here). The expense report summaries include data such as the amount of IEA funding distributed and the amount of IEA funds spent on each type of expense for that quarter. The department cannot publish the individual expense information, as it is confidential student information protected under FERPA.
