Procedures to Petition for Adoption of SBEC Rules or SBEC Rule Changes


The Administrative Procedure Act provides that an interested person may petition a state agency for adoption of a rule (Texas Government Code, §2001.021). As required by the Texas Government Code, the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) has adopted a rule that prescribes the form for a petition and the procedure for its submission, consideration, and disposition.

The procedure to petition for adoption of rules or rule changes to SBEC rules is codified as 19 TAC §250.20.

Petitioners must sign the form and may mail it to the Office of Educator Leadership and Quality, Texas Education Agency, 1701 North Congress Avenue, Austin, Texas 78701. Petitioners may also submit the signed form by email to or by fax to (512) 463-5337.
