The State Board of Education will soon begin the review and revision of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for science. The SBOE’s TEKS review and revision process calls for multiple, separate work groups to make recommendations to the SBOE for revisions to the current standards. SBOE members nominate individuals, including educators, parents, business and industry representatives and employers to serve on TEKS review work groups.
Applications are now being accepted for science TEKS work groups. Individuals selected will be asked to serve on one or more work groups, which will meet in Austin for a minimum of one face-to-face meeting. The application can be accessed here. Questions regarding the application or review process may be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
