SBEC meets tomorrow, will consider new superintendent certification standards
Date Posted: 10/15/2015 | Author: Jennifer Mitchell, CAE
The State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) is scheduled to meet tomorrow, Oct. 16, in Austin. The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. and will be live-streamed through the Texas Education Agency (TEA) website. View the full SBEC meeting agenda here. One of the hot topics on tomorrow's SBEC agenda is a scheduled final vote to adopt new standards for certification as a superintendent in Texas. As we have reported previously on our blog, ATPE opposes an SBEC proposal that would do away with existing requirements for superintendents to have at least two years of classroom teaching experience and a master's degree. ATPE submitted formal written input to SBEC opposing the proposed rule change earlier this month, and ATPE Lobbyist Kate Kuhlmann testified against the proposal at an earlier SBEC meeting in August. Read ATPE's latest press statement about the controversial superintendent certification rule proposal here. An SBEC Committee on Educator Discipline is also meeting today to review existing disciplinary policies and the process for sanctioning certified educators accused of misconduct. Stay tuned to Teach the Vote tomorrow and follow us on Twitter for updates on both meetings from ATPE's Kate Kuhlmann.
