"Texas Education Agency (TEA) will be proposing a number of significant policy changes concerning the state’s assessment program for the 2013–2014 school year.
“As we begin the new school year, I know students, parents, teachers and administrators are seeking answers to many questions regarding the transition to House Bill 5,” said Commissioner Williams. “TEA staff is working diligently to share information regarding this transition as quickly as possible so everyone at the local level can make the best decisions possible.”
