Approved Educator Standards

 

With assistance from almost 2,000 Texas educators, parents, and business and community representatives, the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) has created many new sets of standards for beginning educators in an entry-level position. These standards are focused upon the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), the required statewide public school curriculum, and they reflect current research on the developmental stages and needs of children from Early Childhood through Grade 12.
