Adopted State Board of Education Rules - Not Yet Effective

All new rules or amendments to existing rules with effective dates in the future are available on this site after the rules have been filed with the Texas Register. Under state law, a State Board of Education (SBOE) rule must be adopted at least 90 days before the beginning of the school year in order for it to be effective for the school year. The exception to this process is if an earlier effective date is required by state or federal law or the rule is approved by a two-thirds majority of the SBOE.

Adopted rule text is provided in PDF format. The Adobe Acrobat Reader, required to access PDF files, may be obtained on the Adobe website. When possible, changes to rule text since published as proposed, if any, are shown in red.
