“T-STEM Designation

Under the authority of Texas Education Code (TEC) §39.235 and Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §102.1093, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) has developed a designation process for T-STEM Academies. The designation process identifies districts that operate T-STEM Academies by maintaining the integrity of the model, which was designed to improve instruction and academic performance in science and mathematics-related subjects at secondary schools.

In accordance with TAC §102.1093, the designation process is required for all existing and proposed     T-STEM Academies.”

The T-STEM Designation application is available online at the following address: thetrc.org/TSTEM_2015/.
