2017 Child Support Guidelines Tax Charts

Pursuant to § 154.061(b) of the Texas Family Code, the Office of the Attorney General of Texas, as the Title IV-D agency, has promulgated the following tax charts to assist courts in establishing the amount of a child support order. These tax charts are applicable to employed and self-employed persons in computing net monthly income.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

To use these tables, first compute the obligor's annual gross income. Then recompute to determine the obligor's average monthly gross income. These tables provide a method for calculating "monthly net income" for child support purposes, subtracting from monthly gross income the social security taxes and the federal income tax withholding for a single person claiming one personal exemption and the standard deduction. Thereafter, in many cases the guidelines call for a number of additional steps to complete the necessary calculations. For example, §§ 154.061 - 154.070 provide for appropriate additions to "income" as that term is defined for federal income tax purposes, and for certain subtractions from monthly net income, in order to arrive at the net resources of the obligor available for child support purposes. If necessary, one may compute an obligee's net resources using similar steps.

Notice is hereby given by the State of Texas of the following proposed resolution of an environmental enforcement lawsuit under the Texas Water Code and the Texas Health & Safety Code. Before the State may settle a judicial enforcement action under the Texas Water Code, the State shall permit the public to comment in writing on the proposed judgment. The Attorney General will consider any written comments and may withdraw or withhold consent to the proposed judgment if the comments disclose facts or considerations that include that the consent is inappropriate, improper, inadequate, or inconsistent with the requirements of the Texas Water Code and the Texas Health & Safety Code.

Proposed Agreed Judgment: The Agreed Final Judgment orders Defendants to pay civil penalties of $400,000 to be divided equally between Hunt County and the State of Texas.

Texas Education Agency

Request for Proficiency Tests for the Assessment of English Language Learners

Filing Authority. Texas Education Code, §29.056(a)(2) and (3), and 19 TAC §§89.1220(g), 89.1225(a)-(f) and (h), and 89.1265(a)

Description. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is notifying assessment publishers that proficiency assessments and/or achievement tests may be submitted for review for the List of State Approved Tests for the Assessment of English Language Learners. Texas Education Code (TEC), §29.056(a)(2), authorizes the TEA to compile a list of approved assessments for the purposes of identifying students as English language learners for entry into or exit from (when appropriate) bilingual education and/or English as a second language programs; annually assessing oral language proficiency in English and Spanish when required; and measuring reading and writing proficiency in English and Spanish for program placement. The state-approved tests placed on the list must be based on scientific research and must measure oral language proficiency in listening and speaking in English and Spanish from Prekindergarten (PK)-Grade 12. Assessments must also measure reading and writing in English and Spanish from PK-Grade 12.

Norm-referenced standardized achievement tests in English will be used for identification and entry into programs and for exit from programs for Grades 1 and 2 and may be used as formative assessments.

Norm-referenced standardized achievement tests in Spanish may be used for placement or language development purposes only. All tests to be included on the List of State Approved Tests for the Assessment of English Language Learners must be re-normed at least every eight years to meet the criteria specified in the TEC, §39.032, which requires that standardization norms not be more than eight years old at the time the test is administered. Only new assessments, newly normed assessments, and/or modified/updated assessments must be submitted for evaluation at this time.

The Assessment Committee, comprised of stakeholders from throughout the state, will review and approve the 2017-2018 List of State Approved Tests for the Assessment of English Language Learners.

Selection Criteria. Assessment publishers will be responsible for submitting tests that they wish to be reviewed for consideration for inclusion on the 2017-2018 List of State Approved Tests for the Assessment of English Language Learners. All tests submitted for review must be based on scientific research and must measure oral language proficiency in listening and speaking in English and Spanish from PK-Grade 12. Assessments must measure reading and writing in English and Spanish from PK-Grade 12 and must meet the state criteria for reliability and validity. Therefore, technical manuals must also be submitted and must be available for the review of assessments to be held on Friday, January 20, 2017. Assessments must also measure specific proficiency levels in oral language, reading, and writing in English and Spanish. Assessment instruments (English and Spanish) submitted for review will be grouped in the following categories: (1) Oral Language Proficiency Tests in English in Listening and Speaking domains; (2) Oral Language Proficiency Tests in Spanish in Listening and Speaking domains; (3) Reading and Writing Proficiency in English; and (4) Reading and Writing Proficiency in Spanish. Publishers are not required to submit proposals for all categories.

Proposals must be submitted and presented on Friday, January 20, 2017, to be considered for inclusion on the 2017-2018 List of State Approved Tests for the Assessment of English Language Learners. Assessment publishers will be required to attend the review of the assessments on Friday, January 20, 2017, which will be held at the William B. Travis Building, Room 1-104, 1701 North Congress Avenue, Austin, Texas. Complete official sample test copies in English and Spanish with comprehensive explanations, including (1) scoring information; (2) norming data information, including ethnicity, gender, grade level, and geographic region; and (3) technical manuals with validity and reliability information, must be presented at that time. Only materials presented on Friday, January 20, 2017, will be considered for approval. Publishers must be available all day at the request of the committee and must make arrangements to pick up all materials at the end of the day. Any materials and/or revisions submitted after the deadline cannot be reviewed until the following year.

Further Information. For clarifying information, contact Susie Coultress, State Director of Bilingual/ESL/Title III/Migrant Education, Texas Education Agency, (512) 463-9581.
