Rider 78 aims to increase quality in all Pre-K programs across the state. One of ways to ensure that we provide a high quality Pre-k program is looking at the Teacher Qualifications and the preparation that they have received in addition to their teaching certificate. Rider 78 includes 7 options by which a teacher can be consider highly qualified. Option 6 and 7 include the important role that coaching and mentoring can play when supporting teachers in their classroom.
TEA will be hosting a webinar on Mentoring and Coaching on Tuesday, November 28th, 2017 at 10:00 am CST. Click here to register.
Please note that LEAs will be required to submit how each teacher is consider highly qualified, along with all other Rider 78 components, during their Summer PEIMS submission.
If you are not able to watch the session live, a recording will be available at a later date on the Educator Resources page of the TEA website along with previous webinars.
TEA will continue to host webinars to support teachers and administrators in understanding all the Rider 78 components. To receive their latest updates sign up HERE.
