House Bill 2012 (83rd Legislative Session), requires the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to conduct an audit of federal, state, and local professional development requirements and quality. In partnership with the contract awardee, Learning Forward Center for Results, TEA and the TXCC worked to develop and refine a survey regarding educator professional development (PD) that will be completed by district superintendents or designees. Also to gather qualitative data on PD requirements and quality, site visits and focus groups will be conducted in a sample of districts and charter schools throughout the state of Texas. The survey and site visits will take place beginning in late May, following administration of state assessment. Furthermore, TEA and Learning Forward have agreed that focus groups will include representation of the following personnel: principal, school counselor, school librarian, educational diagnostician, reading specialist, master teacher, classroom teacher, and educational aide.Finally, in order to facilitate the understanding and support of staff from the 20 regional education service centers and educator-related professional organizations, individuals from these organizations were invited to participate in a 45-minute webinar to learn more about events related to the audit. By keeping these individuals and entities aware of upcoming activities it is hoped that they can provide support, outreach, and information to their district staffs about the survey and the focus groups in which they will participate.
