Do not forget, we have a board meeting usually right before midwinter conference. I will email you more information as I find out. I do not have details yet.
Information on CTE TEKS review and revision from Ron Whitson:
I think it is very important that we have quality representation from our secondary automotive technology and automotive collision repair teachers. Business and industry input is also important to a balanced TEKS writing process. Please feel free to distribute this to those with an interest. There will, of course, be other opportunities to provide input into this process as we progress over the next year or so. In addition to the actual writing teams there will be opportunities to provide public comments and testimony and possibly some stakeholder meetings.
Career and Technical Education (CTE) TEKS Review
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is currently accepting applications from individuals interested in serving on the State Board of Education’s TEKS review committees for career and technical education (CTE). To express your interest in serving on a CTE TEKS review committee, please submit a completed application and attach a current résumé. Please visit the TEA website at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/index2.aspx?id=25769807883 for an application and for more information. Nominations to the TEKS review committees are expected to be announced in spring 2014.
The conference planing is in full swing. We have Toyota on board, Possible CAT (not sure yet) and Glenn Young, the tour of the Circuit of Americas, I-Car and more. If you have any ideas, this is the last call for them. Please contact me ASAP if you want some input for this conference. I will also send the email out so you will know who are your district directors.
I will be emailing you all again as soon as I know more. I hope to see you there.
