Texas State Board of Education Learning Roundtable Conference
The 2019 Roundtable Discussions will focus on the Texas Long-Range Plan for Public Education. Please join me as I moderate the Roundtable Discussion on Access & Equity.
"If the goal is to reach equitable outcomes for all students, regardless of demographics or geography, then the state must prioritize efforts to ensure that students who require more support receive what they need to be successful."

Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) Review & Adoption Process
I made two substantial revisions, both accepted, at the preliminary vote taken in November. These revisions are expected to pass unanimously in January:
International Baccalaureate (IB) High School Diploma Programmes
Since August 2018, my office has received several call and emails requesting clarification of IB Diploma Programmes and graduation requirements. In an effort to resolve these issues, a Q&A page has been created. Questions from teachers and administrators. Answers from TEA. Click here to review. Several of these questions are scheduled to be addressed in the January 2019 TXSBOE session.
