Meeting Dates

Due to Governor Greg Abbott’s March 13, 2020 proclamation of a state of disaster affecting all counties in Texas due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the Governor’s March 16, 2020 suspension of certain provisions of the Texas Open Meetings Act, arrangements are being made for the State Board of Education (SBOE) to conduct its April meeting virtually. The SBOE is expected to limit its agenda to those items that require immediate action. Members of the public will have access and a means to participate in this meeting, and details will be posted as soon as they are available. 
 
As a result of COVID-19, health and PE work group meetings were delayed. Consequently, the public hearings and discussion items related to the review and revision of health education and physical education TEKS will be postponed until May to allow sufficient time for work groups to complete their charges. Details regarding this meeting will also be posted as soon as they are available.
