Revised Training Plan Agreements
for Career Preparation and Practicum Courses

TEA has posted a revised Paid Training Plan Agreement form and a revised Unpaid Training Plan Agreement form on the CTE Web page. The TEA Program Monitoring and Interventions (PMI) Division recommended a change to the current form in order to insure that local education agencies were in compliance with federal directives from the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). The changes affect the non-discrimination statements on the form.

It is not necessary to replace any training agreements that are currently in effect and that were developed using the previous training plan form, but districts are encouraged to use the new form from this time forward. The updated form shows a revision date of 11/2015.

If the school is using some other type of training contract, memorandum of understanding (MOU), or group training plan it is important that the language from the training plan agreement non-discrimination statements be included in any such document. If you have questions please contact Ron Whitson at TEA (512-463-9581).

NEW! The Division of Instructional Materials and Educational Technology (IMET) needs assistance from teachers and others across the state interested in reviewing new instructional materials that are submitted in response to Proclamation 2017. Proclamation 2017 calls for instructional materials for languages other than English, career and technical education, Special Topics in Social Studies, Statistics, and Algebraic Reasoning. The materials are scheduled to be reviewed during the summer of 2016, adopted by the SBOE in November 2016, and available for use beginning in the 2017‒2018 school year. Nomination forms for those interested in serving on the state review panels for Proclamation 2017 are available on the IMET Web site.
If you have any questions, please contact (512) 463-9601 or

REMINDER: Teachers assigned to teach a CTE course that meets graduation requirements for math or science must meet HOUSE (high objective uniform standard of evaluation) requirements for NCLB.
