How to Move Forward with Cameras in the Classroom
Share |

 

The proposed rules on the law requiring cameras in certain special education classrooms offer a preliminary look at what you should be doing to gear up for the next school year. While the Texas Education Agency has requested an expedited opinion from the Texas Attorney General’s office on a few of the issues raised by the law, it could be months before an opinion is offered.

 

In the meantime, what are districts to do? The best plan is to move ahead with the draft rules that TEA has written, and begin building the technology structure and policies that will likely be needed.

 

Join TCASE in one or both of the following webinars aimed at helping you gear up using the power of your network. You don’t have to tackle this alone.
