The Texas Social Studies Supervisors Association (TSSSA) acts as an advocate for the core mission of public education as outlined in the Texas Education Code that states, the "primary purpose of the public school curriculum is to prepare thoughtful, active citizens who understand the importance of patriotism."
In order to fulfill that purpose, members and leaders of TSSSA are urged to model active citizenship by taking positions for education policies that support our shared mission of improving social studies curriculum in Texas.
Texas Education Agency wants to hear from you and your teachers before the Second Reading in November 2022.
September 26–27, 2022.- First Reading
The proposed revisions add social studies content required by Senate Bill (SB) 3, 87th Texas Legislature, Second-Called Session, 2021. The rule text documents for subchapters A, B, and C reflect changes to be considered by the SBOE. Additionally, these documents include comments (noted in yellow) that show the alignment of the current student expectations to the requirements of SB 3. The Senate Bill 3 side-by-side document provides a crosswalk between the requirements outlined in the bill and the proposed revisions.
