RULE §100.1013Filing of Documents

The following provisions apply to a document filed with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) under a provision of this subchapter. Grant applications and other documents filed with the TEA under provisions other than this subchapter are governed by the filing rules specific to those documents.

  (1) Hand delivery. A document shall be deemed filed only when stamped received by the receiving division of the TEA. A document stamped received after 5:00 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST) shall be deemed filed on the following business day.

  (2) Mail or courier. A document may be filed by mail if sent by certified United States mail, return receipt requested, or by an overnight courier service. A document shall be deemed timely filed if it is mailed on the filing deadline, as evidenced by a legible postmark placed on the envelope by the United States Postal Service, and the document is stamped received by the receiving division by 5:00 p.m. CST on the fifth business day following the filing deadline.

  (3) Facsimile transmission. Where facsimile transmission is permitted by the receiving division, the following provisions apply:

    (A) Facsimile transmission of a document via telecopier to the receiving division constitutes filing if received in legible form. Filing by facsimile completed after 5:00 p.m. CST shall be deemed filed on the following business day.

    (B) If the document requires an original signature or must be an original under applicable rules, then facsimile transmission constitutes filing only if, by 5:00 p.m. on the tenth calendar day following the filing deadline, the original is stamped received by the receiving division.

  (4) Receiving division. The receiving division is the division of the TEA specified by any rule in 19 TAC, Part II, requiring that a document be filed with the TEA. If a rule does not specify a division, the receiving division is the TEA division responsible for charter schools.

  (5) Misdirected filing. A document sent to a division other than the receiving division shall not be deemed filed unless and until received by the receiving division. It shall not be the responsibility of any division to timely redirect a document sent to a division other than the receiving division.
