Summary: Requires the SBOE to conduct a review of the TEKS for career and technology and technology applications and amend board rules to consolidate the technology applications courses for grades 9-12 with the career and technical education courses and eliminate duplicative courses while ensuring certifications are aligned with the rigor of each course. Requires each district with a website to post the name, e-mail address and term of office of each member of the school board. If the district does not have a website, the information must be reported to TEA, which will post it on the TEA website. The information must be updated as the school board membership changes.
