TASA Committee Focused on Updating Facilities Standards Seeks Subcommittee Members
01.21.2019 — TASA has created a special committee (TEA School Facilities Committee) to explore the scope and structure of the Texas Education Agency’s School Facilities Standards. The TEA School Facilities Committee will lead the process and serve as the group to submit proposed standards to TEA.
In an effort to solicit broad stakeholder feedback and participation, the Committee is conducting a nominations process for subcommittee members. Subcommittee assignments will be determined in February 2019 after the Committee has determined the best organization of these working groups and those interested have been identified.
If you or someone in your organization is interested in serving on a subcommittee, please submit your nomination as directed below. Consistency among subcommittee working groups is critical to the success of this undertaking; therefore, it is necessary for interested stakeholders to commit to full engagement in all in-person or remote meetings. (At this time, we do not anticipate in-person meetings, but since the assignments won’t be determined until after the deadline to participate, nominees should be prepared to attend at least one in-person meeting in Austin.)
