The implementation of SB 9 will require cooperation between the TEA and the Department of Public Safety, Independent School Districts, Regional Service Centers and Charter Schools. We are currently working with these partners to develop the processes for implementing the requirements of SB 9. At this time no fingerprinting is required on the part of schools or their employees, and any fingerprinting that is done now will not comply with the clearinghouse requirements of SB 9. We will notify the affected parties as the action becomes required on their part. Please continue to monitor the TEA and SBEC websites for new developments.
