SBOE to hold public hearing on new graduation requirements
Date Posted: 9/12/2013 | Author: Jennifer Mitchell, CAE
The State Board of Education (SBOE) is holding a public hearing Tuesday, Sept. 17 on the new foundation high school program graduation requirements required by House Bill 5 (from the 83rd legislative session). The board is seeking input from the general public, including educators. This is an excellent opportunity for educators to share their thoughts and concerns directly with SBOE. One of the major topics will be determining the requirements for the various subject area endorsement tracks. If you are interested in testifying before the board, please contact ATPE Governmental Relations. You can also register to testify directly with SBOE between the hours of 8 a.m. Friday (Sept. 13) and 5 p.m. Monday (Sept. 16) by calling (512) 463-9007. Read the official notice from the Texas Education Agency website. For more information, contact ATPE Governmental Relations.
