Southwest Schools is pleased to provide our stakeholders with website links provided by the Texas Education Agency that help facilitate public comments in proposed rulemaking.
A public comment is an opportunity for any interested person to submit data, views, or arguments on a proposed rule. The opportunity for public comment is required by state law, Texas Government Code, §2001.029.
The links are as follows:
- Commissioner of education rules: https://tea.texas.gov/About_TEA/Laws_and_Rules/Commissioner_Rules_(TAC)/Proposed_Commissioner_of_Education_Rules/
- State Board of Education Rules: https://tea.texas.gov/About_TEA/Laws_and_Rules/SBOE_Rules_(TAC)/Proposed_State_Board_of_Education_Rules/
- State Board for Educator Certification Rules: https://tea.texas.gov/About_TEA/Laws_and_Rules/SBEC_Rules_(TAC)/Proposed_State_Board_for_Educator_Certification_Rules/
TEA has also provided a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to answer questions you may have on the public comment process for proposed rulemaking. If you have any additional questions regarding the public comment process, you may contact the TEA Rulemaking Unit at (512) 475-1497 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
