Procedures to Petition for Adoption of State Board of Education or Commissioner of Education Rule Changes

The Administrative Procedure Act provides that an interested person may petition a state agency for adoption of a rule (Government Code, §2001.021). As required by the Texas Government Code, the State Board of Education (SBOE) and the Commissioner of Education have adopted rules that prescribe the form for a petition and the procedure for its submission, consideration and disposition.

The procedure to petition for adoption of changes to SBOE rules is codified as 19 TAC §30.1. The procedure to petition for adoption of changes to commissioner rules is codified as 19 TAC §30.1001.

The petition form must be signed and may be mailed to the Commissioner of Education, Texas Education Agency, 1701 North Congress Avenue, Austin, Texas 78701. The signed petition form may also be submitted by email to rules@tea.state.tx.us or by fax to (512) 463-5337.
