Let Officials Know You Oppose Weakened Standards for Superintendents

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) and State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) are accepting public comments through Oct. 5 on a proposed rule to weaken the standards for becoming a certified superintendent in Texas. As we reported on our blog at TeachtheVote.org, ATPE opposes the rule change that would eliminate requirements for superintendent candidates to have at least two years of teaching experience, a master’s degree, and a principal’s certificate. The SBEC will make a final decision on the rule next month.

Get more information about the proposed rule, and share your feedback by emailing comments to the SBEC at sbecrules@tea.texas.gov.
