TEA to hold hearings on special education rules
Date Posted: 6/19/2014 | Author: Monty Exter
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has scheduled two public hearings next week to discuss proposed changes to administrative rules relating to special education. Changes to special education requirements resulting from the 82nd and 83rd Texas Legislatures affected multiple sections of 19 TAC Chapter 89, Adaptations for Special Populations, Subchapter AA, Commissioner's Rules Concerning Special Education Services. Accordingly, the affected rules require revisions in order to be aligned with the relevant changes to statute. Hearings on the proposed revisions have been scheduled for Wednesday, June 25, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Friday, June 27, 2014, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the TEA headquarters. Both hearings will take place in Room 1-100, William B. Travis Building, 1701 North Congress Avenue, Austin, Texas 78701. The text of the proposed rule revisions and statutory citations can be found here on TEA's website. Written comments on the proposed rule changes may also be submitted to TEA at firstname.lastname@example.org through July 14, 2014.
