TEA establishes Answers online video library

AUSTIN – Commissioner of Education Mike Morath announced today that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) has established an online video library to house its new Answers in About a Minute video series. 

Answers in About a Minute videos are designed to share basic information on various TEA initiatives and programs. Each video in the series is less than two minutes and directly answers specific questions in a user-friendly format that is clear and concise.

The inaugural series of Answers videos will focus on the A-F State Accountability Rating System for school districts, which will be used for the first time on Aug. 15.

“Parents want the best for their child’s education and often seek information that will help them make good decisions,” said Commissioner Morath. “The Answers in About a Minute video series is one direct way we can provide information on issues such as state accountability ratings, as well as other public education topics in Texas.”

Answers in About a Minute videos are among the available tools created by TEA to help parents and community members learn about the A-F system. The videos and other A-F resources are posted at https://tea.texas.gov/A-F/. More videos will be available leading up to Aug. 15.

In addition, the online video library will continue to grow to encompass more questions on additional topics. Videos will be added on a regular basis.
