Did you know that OCLC stopped printing library card catalogs in October 2015? That ended a 150-year process. However, the information available within those library card catalogs is still as needed as ever.
In June 2017, the State Board of Education (SBOE) approved a new process to be used for the review and revision of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards. The new TEKS review process calls for up to five separate work group meetings and provides multiple opportunities for the public to provide feedback on the recommendations of the work groups. The SBOE also approved updates to the TEKS review and instructional materials adoption schedules, which will impact publishers and their submission process.
