HOUSE BILL 5
House Bill 5, enacted in July 2013, has had a huge impact upon Texas schools and high schools in particular. The Education Service Center Region 12 is dedicated to helping support our schools implement the Foundation HS program. With so many areas being affected, multiple offices at the Center work collaboratively to compile and share information coming from the Texas Education Agency (TEA).
SCHOLAR is an organized collection of resources and information, separated into 4 categories relative to typical duties of school counselors. Important online resources and links are provided for you including that of TEA, THECB, and other sites so you can have pertinent information at your fingertips. Additional resources may be added or removed as needed, based on identified needs of school counselors.
EVERY STUDENT SUCCEEDS ACT
At the close of 2015, Congress passed and the President signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which brings about the first major overhaul to federal education policy in almost 15 years. The ESSA provides our state an opportunity to leverage new flexibilities that bring greater emphasis to Texas’ priorities in educating our more than five million school children.
