The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has launched a trauma-informed training webinar series called "Project Restore." The series of videos, only the first of which is posted for now, is meant to help teachers learn about trauma and apply the training in practice with their own students, as well as to combat their own stress. The second video in the series, set to be released September 10, is specifically about helping educators reflect and work through the effects of the pandemic on their lives. The trainings offer Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits and count for the trauma-informed training requirements of Senate Bill 11 passed by the 86th Texas Legislature in 2019.
Other significant updates to TEA's COVID-19 Support and Guidance web page this week include minor updates to the agency's public health guidance document to more clearly define the phrase "on-campus" for purposes of reporting cases; presence on a school bus is included in the definition. The agency also made its regular and continual updates to the Texas Home Learning website. Updates were also made to TEA's remote instruction guidance and attendance and enrollment FAQ to clarify how asynchronous instruction works for students who do not have access to Internet or devices. Lastly, the federal funding and grants FAQ on the agency's website newly explains that school districts are allowed to keep migrant students enrolled throughout the year.
As always, please visit ATPE's frequently-updated COVID-19 FAQs and Resources web page for Texas educators for additional, up-to-date information.
