Update Preview

In early January districts will begin receiving Update 112 packets. This update will include:

  • Legal and local policy revisions based on updates to the Texas Administrative Code;
  • Some recoding of provisions; and
  • Reorganization of some policies into separate codes for ease of use.

Approximately 70 legal policies will be included in this update, including GKA(LEGAL), which addresses a new commissioner of education rule authorizing district officials to, in certain circumstances, refuse entry to or eject a person from property under a district’s control. The rule impacts GKA(LOCAL), FNG(LOCAL), and GF(LOCAL).

Update 112 will include the following local policies. Contact your policy consultant if your district is considering changes to these local codes:

  • BJA—Superintendent qualifications and duties
  • CCG—Ad valorem taxes
  • CH—Purchasing and acquisition
  • CQ—Technology resources
  • CV—Facilities construction
  • DCB—Term contracts
  • DH—Employee standards of conduct
  • DIA—Freedom from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation
  • FMA—Student activities
  • FNG—Student and parent complaints
  • GF—Public complaints
  • GKA—Conduct on school premises
  • GKB—Advertising and fundraising

Regulations Resource Manual (RRM) Update 58 will be available in early December. The RRM update will include:

  • Recoding and deletion of some model regulations and forms.
  • Revisions to several forms—including those at FNG(EXHIBIT), GF(EXHIBIT), and GKA(EXHIBIT)—to track the new commissioner’s rule authorizing district officials to, in certain circumstances, refuse entry to or eject a person from property under a district’s control.

District superintendents, superintendent secretaries, and policy contacts will receive an email from Policy Service when the revised RRM is available online.
