TSELA Election Results

Officer elections for the positions of President-Elect and Treasurer were held during our November 11, 2015 meeting. Shane Woods, Fort Worth ISD, was elected to the position of President-Elect and Debbie Richards, Bryan ISD, was elected to the position of Treasurer.  Both will take office June 1, 2016. 

STAAR Update

Luis Salinas of the Texas Education Agency was able to confirm that the STAAR test banks developed under Pearson will be transferred to Education Testing Services (ETS).  This answers the question many of our members had regarding any anticipated changes to question format.  The blueprint, question format etc. will remain the same under ETS.

Science TEKS Revision

The State Board of Education (SBOE) discussed the upcoming science TEKS revision process at its November 12-13 meeting. Testimony was provided by TSELA and STAT members. Our testimony and TEA timeline document will be available in the Members section of our website.
