TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED
Pilot Teacher Surveys to Evaluate Texas Educator Preparation Programs
purpose of this letter is to provide notice that the Texas Education Agency
(TEA) will be collecting data from new teachers under
a standard certificate, regarding the
effectiveness of educator preparation programs (EPPs) in preparing them to
succeed in the classroom.
Education Code (TEC) §21.045 and Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapter 229, Accountability
System for Educator Preparation Programs, require accountability standards
for Texas EPPs. Current State Board for
Educator Certification (SBEC) rules require each new
teacher to complete a survey at the end of the first year of teaching. The
information provided will assist in improving the educational experience for
teacher candidates through EPPs.
Teachers can expect to receive an e-mail with the survey link on April 18, 2018. The final date to submit the pilot teacher
survey is June 15, 2018. Participating teachers will earn 10
continuing professional education (CPE) credits after completing the survey.
