TXCC staff collaborated with Texas Education Agency (TEA) associate commissioner of accountability on planning and providing a facilitator for a called meeting of the Commission this month. The facilitator was instrumental in planning the session with the associate commissioner and the Commission’s chair. Using current best practices in facilitation combined with many years of experience, she worked with the Commission for most of the session to elicit their final recommendations. She also provided materials for Commission members to read before the session and provided a summary and notes of the Commission’s recommendations.
TXCC staff was responsible for designing the recommendation format for the final report. In addition, they provided the first draft of the fourteen recommendations. This report included the recommendation, the rationale, any required statutory changes, and other considerations for the local, state, and federal levels. TXCC also produced a chart indicating whether each of the recommendations had a short-term or long-term impact.
