Texas Education Agency
Rule Review Plan--Revised

In accordance with the Texas Government Code, ยง2001.039, the State Board of Education and the Texas Education Agency submit the following revised plan for review of their rules. This revised rule review plan, filed on March 13, 2007, reflects changes to the revised plan filed on December 5, 2005.

Senate Bill 467, 77th Texas Legislature, 2001, exempted the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) from the rule review requirement; accordingly, this rule review plan does not include the rule chapters for the TEKS. 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.
