TSELA Officer Update

In the TSELA by-laws revision, associate members are non-voting member and therefor ineligible for officer positions. Lisa Filske accepted a position before her term started that made her ineligible to serve. Instead of appointing a president-elect in June, the board held a special election during the winter business meeting and elected Caitlin Couch as the new president elect. We are excited to welcome her to the leadership team and congratulate Caitlin! A special thank you to Lisa for being willing to serve! Check out the draft meeting minutes coming soon for more information.

TSELA Advocacy Position Statement Related to the Science TEKS Review

This position statement was formally adopted by the TSELA Board after a member vote on July 9, 2020.

Related to the Science TEKS Review and Revision, TSELA asks that the State Board of Education (SBOE), TEA staff and members of the TEKS Review Committee consider the following:

    • TSELA recommends that standards are created by accessing research-based resources including “A Framework for K-12 Science Education.” Carefully considering integration of content, cross-cutting concepts, and science and engineering practices. Note: This may also be referred to as simply the Science Framework.
    • TSELA recommends that significant attention is given to intentional vertical and horizontal alignment within the revised TEKS.
    • TSELA recommends that adequate time is provided both for the workgroups and in the process for soliciting feedback in order to allow appropriate educator and expert engagement with the process.
