Are you a school librarian or reading specialist looking for a leadership opportunity? The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is currently seeking nominations for Educator Standards Advisory Committee members in the School Librarian and Reading Specialist certification areas.
These committees will advise the agency and the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) on the educator standards for these certificates, which are the knowledge and skills deemed necessary to hold the certificate, as well as broader issues related to the certification area.
The nomination period is open now through February 15, 2021. Educators may nominate themselves or another educator for committee consideration. To nominate an educator, please complete the appropriate nomination form and submit it via email to TEAEducatorStandards@tea.texas.gov on or before the February 15 deadline. Download the School Librarian nomination form here, and download the Reading Specialist nomination form here.TEA staff plan to select between eight and 15 nominations for each of the two committees to be reviewed by SBEC. The board is expected to review and approve members for the School Librarian and Reading Specialist committees at its meeting in April 2021.
