Guide to Completing the 2019-20 Student Application for the IEA Program


Hi and welcome to the IEA Program Guide
to completing the IEA Student Application. Before you apply to the IEA
Program, we recommend that you use the following resources:
To find out if your student may be eligible to participate in the IEA
Program, take the ‘Is My Child Eligible Quiz’ that is posted on the IEA web page.
For a list of things to consider before applying to the program, read the ‘Top Five Things to Consider’ resource. To learn more about the IEA Account Holder
responsibilities, read the ‘Parent and Student Responsibilities’ web page. For a
complete description of the IEA Program, including how IEA funds can be used, how
IEA funds are distributed, how parents must report uses of funds to the
department, and student assessment requirements, see the IEA Parent Handbook When do I complete the IEA Student
Application? The 2019-20 IEA Student Application will launch in
January of 2019. The application instructions will be posted on the IEA
web page. To be notified when the IEA applications have launched, you can
subscribe to the IEA newsletter called the IEA Update. All applications must be
received by the department by 3 p.m. central time on April 15, 2019. The
department will not review applications that are received after the deadline has
passed. The IEA application must be completed by either a parent or guardian
of the student or the student who has reached 18 years of age. The individual
completing the application will be the IEA account holder. What information
do I need to know to complete the IEA Student Application? You’ll need to know
the student state ID number. This number can be found on a student’s IEP. If
you’re unsure of what this number is, please contact your local public school
district. You’ll also need to know the student’s primary and/or secondary
disability listed on their current IEP. This can be found on the student’s active
IEP. If you have any questions about locating this information or need a copy
of the student’s IEP, contact your local public school district. You’ll also need
to know the type of school the student plans on attending. They can either be
independently home schooled and registered with the school district or
attend a private school, which includes an umbrella program. What documents do I need to submit with
the IEA Student Application? You’ll need a copy of the parent or legal guardian or
student who is applying valid driver’s license or government-issued ID.
It cannot be expired. If you have questions about this and what would
count as a government-issued ID, please e-mail [email protected] You’ll also
need a copy of the student birth certificate or proof of legal
guardianship. Proof of legal guardianship is required if the account holder’s name
is not listed on the student’s birth certificate. If the account holder’s legal
name has changed from what was listed on the student’s birth certificate, you’ll
also need a copy of the proof of legal name change. You will also need to
complete the W-9 form. You’ll need to add your or the account holder’s information
and download form that’s posted on the web link below. If the student moved to Tennessee on or
after August 2nd, 2018, you’ll also need to submit proof that the student has
moved to Tennessee from another state on or after that date. Examples would include a copy of an out-of-state utility bill, rental agreement, property tax bills,
affidavit from the landlord, driver’s license, or mortgage statements. You also could submit enrollment records from schools outside of Tennessee. If the
parent is submitting the application on behalf of a students who will have attained the age of 18 on or before August 1st of the school year the student is seeking
to enroll in the IEA Program, so if the student has turned 18 are before August 1st of 2019, the parent must submit a power of attorney or order granting
conservatorship with the IEA Application. How do you upload supporting documents? The IEA team will need a clear and legible picture or scan of the original
copy of the supporting documents. You can use one of the following devices to capture the image: a camera (which would include digital cameras or cameras within your
cell phone), a scanner (which can be either standalone or attached to a printer). It
is important that these pictures are clear and legible. If the department is
unable to read the text in the document the application will be considered
incomplete. To submit the 2019-20 IEA Student Application, go to the IEA
web page. If you have any questions, you can contact the IEA team directly by
emailing [email protected] or calling 615-253-3781. Please note: Due to the volume of calls and emails, it can take the IEA team up to 10 business days to respond. Thank you!
