Public Comments on Proposed Rulemaking

TEA recently published a correspondence requesting school districts and open-enrollment charter school publish on its website links to TEA's web pages that house proposed rules of the commissioner of education, State Board of Education (SBOE), and State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC).  The intent of publishing these links is to encourage public participation in the process of making rule changes.  The links are as follows:
