HB 3 Transition Plan - Changes Will Occur in 2011-2012
Dec. 2010: The Transition Plan for House Bill 3 contains a detailed description of the process the commissioner of education will use to develop and implement the provisions of House Bill 3 (81st Texas Legislature, 2009), as required by Section 68 of the bill.
The transition plan has sections covering the development of the new State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR™) program; the development of new performance ratings for Texas public schools; federal requirements for assessment and accountability; accreditation, sanctions and interventions; and financial accountability. Although HB 3 and this transition plan focus on assessment and accountability, two appendices include summaries of actions taken across other provisions of the bill. A Rulemaking Schedule summarizes State Board of Education and commissioner of education rulemaking required by HB 3. A Status of Implementation table summarizes the implementation status of the bill.
A summary document that includes highlights of the transition plan has also been developed. This highlights document can be accessed at the link below.
