As a service, TEA will provide a Preliminary Criminal History Evaluation for a non-refundable fee.    

 

You are eligible to request a Preliminary Criminal History Evaluation if:   

  • You enrolled or planning to enroll in an educator preparation program or
  • You are planning to take a certification exam for initial educator certification, and
  • You have reason to believe that you may be ineligible for educator certification due to a conviction or deferred adjudication for a felony or misdemeanor offense.
  • You are not eligible for a preliminary evaluation of your criminal history if you do not have a conviction or deferred adjudication for a felony or misdemeanor offense.
