Current Industry-Based Certification for High School Accountability
The 2019-2022 (2019-2020, 2020-2021, and 2021-2022 school years) Industry-Based Certification List for Public School Accountability and 1-page resources are linked below. The 2022-2023 Industry-Based Certification List for Public School Accountability is currently under review.
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) understands that new developments in industry occur regularly. Therefore, the TEA will engage in a bi-annual review of the list of certifications. The TEA solicits feedback from industry councils and employers to determine certifications that are industry valued and recognized. A finalized list will be available in early Spring of alternating years (beginning in Spring 2019). Please note that due to shutdowns caused by COVID-19, the 2020 evaluation and resulting list were postponed until 2021 and 2022, respectively.
