Texas Education Agency

Rule Review Plan - Revised

In accordance with the Texas Government Code, 2001.039, the Texas Education Agency submits the following revised plan for review of their rules. This revised rule review plan, filed on July 23, 2001, reflects changes to the plan filed on August 16, 2000.

Senate Bill 467, 77th Texas Legislature, 2001, exempted the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)  from the rule review requirement. This plan has been revised to remove the TEKS from the rule review process. Although the rules will not be reviewed as part of the rule review process, the State Board of Education does intend to conduct a comprehensive review of the TEKS. This comprehensive review of the curriculum content will be designed to align the adoption of textbook proclamations with the amendments to the TEKS.
