the Texas Education Agency (TEA) officially launched a revised version of our
agency website. This launch brought with it a new and shorter website URL:
As part of the next phase in this transition, the agency will be moving to utilize
that shorter URL within every agency email address.
Dec. 15, 2014, TEA email addresses will transition from the current format of Firstname.Lastname@tea.texas.gov
to the shorter Firstname.Lastname@tea.texas.gov.
that any email your district receives from TEA staff will begin coming from “@tea.texas.gov”
on that date. I want to stress that both the old email format and new email
format will still work in communicating with our agency staff. However, I would
encourage changing to the new and shorter format as soon as possible.
please alert your IT department of this transition to allow the new domain of
“@tea.texas.gov” through any spam filters your district may have.
If you have
any questions or concerns regarding the email transition (or have comments
regarding the new agency website), please feel free to contact TEA
Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org
(through Dec. 14), email@example.com
(beginning Dec. 15) or calling (512) 463-9000.
