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. The agency will ensure all proposed certifications meet the established criteria before providing an opportunity for stakeholder feedback during a public comment period. 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.
