2013-2017 State Board of Education Rule Review Plan

The State Board of Education (SBOE) conducts a four-year rule review of all its rules to ensure that "the reason for adopting or readopting the rule continues to exist." Texas Government Code, §2001.039, establishes this rule review for all state agency rules. The SBOE approved the following rule review plan in April 2013 and revised it in July 2013 and April 2014. The plan only includes rules in effect at the time the SBOE approved the plan. Future changes to the plan will be available here.

Senate Bill 467, 77th Texas Legislature, 2001, exempted the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) from the rule review requirement; accordingly, this plan does not include the rule chapters for the TEKS. Although the rules are not reviewed as part of the rule review process, the SBOE conducts a comprehensive review of the TEKS according to a separate schedule. This comprehensive review of the curriculum content aligns the adoption of textbook proclamations with the amendments to the TEKS.

Please note that amendments to rules specified in the plan may be proposed at different dates through a separate rulemaking process.
