Adopted State Board of Education Rules - Not Yet Effective

All new rules or amendments to existing rules with effective dates in the future are available on this site after the agency has filed the rules with the Texas Register. Under state law, the State Board of Education (SBOE) must adopt a rule at least 90 days before the beginning of the school year for it to be effective for that school year. The exception to this process is if state or federal law requires an earlier effective date or the SBOE approves the rule by a two-thirds majority.
