Announcing Board Continuing Education Credit

Annually, at the last regular board meeting of the calendar year (usually December), the current president of each local board of trustees shall announce the name of each board member who has completed the required continuing education, who has exceeded the required hours of continuing education, and who is deficient in the required continuing education as of the date of the meeting.

The announcement shall state that completing the annual required continuing education is a basic obligation and expectation of any sitting board member under State Board Of Education rule. The president shall cause the minutes of the local board to reflect the information and shall make this information available to the local media. (19TAC §61.1(j).
