LEGISLATIVE UPDATES


84th Legislative Session Bills

HB 2205
 - CTE Certification HB 2205 allows a school board to issue a school district teaching permit to a person who will teach courses only in career and technical education based on certain qualifications certified by the superintendent. A school district must require such an employee to obtain at least 20 hours of classroom management training and to comply with continuing education requirements as determined by the school board.

HB 2804 Passed by the 84th Texas Legislature (2015), HB 2804 requires changes to the state public school accountability system.  It creates five domains of indicators that will be used to evaluate districts and campuses regarding three goals:

 

1. Preparing students for post-secondary success

2. Reducing achievement gaps among students from different racial and ethnic groups and socioeconomic backgrounds

3. Informing parents and the community about district and campus performance


The bill also creates A-F rating labels to describe district and campus performance.  Districts and campuses will receive a rating of A, B, C, D, or F for performance in each of the five domains and for overall performance.
