College and Career and Military Prep Listening Tour

TEA is excited to announce that the College and Career and Military Preparation (CCMP) Division will be conducting a statewide listening tour to inform the development of a new state plan required for the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V), and the development of statewide frameworks for STEM education and Work-based Learning (WBL). Starting in December, the team will gather information and feedback from stakeholders across the state on the major components of Perkins V, as well as current challenges and areas of success around implementing and expanding high-quality STEM and Work-based Learning to all students in Texas. 


We would like districts to have representation from elementary, middle, and high school leadership.  We would also like to have content specialists or instructional coaches from math, science, and CTE as well as a counselor.  Districts do not have to send all these staff members, but our goal is to have collective representation in the room for these areas.  All face-to-face meetings will be held at the Regional Education Service Center. 

Below is the agenda for the visit.
