Disciplinary Actions Taken against Texas Educators

The State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) may take the following disciplinary actions against an educator’s certification:

  •  place restrictions on the issuance, renewal, or holding of a certificate, either indefinitely or for a set term;
  •  issue an inscribed or non-inscribed reprimand;
  •  suspend a certificate for a set term or issue a probated suspension for a set term;
  •  revoke or cancel, which includes accepting the surrender of, a certificate without opportunity for reapplication for a set term or permanently; or
  •  impose any additional conditions or restrictions upon a certificate as deemed necessary by the SBEC.


Disciplinary action reports will only include SBEC actions which are final, as defined in Texas Government Code, §2001.144-146.  Beginning with the FY 2015-2016 report, the published information will be updated quarterly.
