File Attachment:
Summary: Effective with the 2018-2019 school year, the Texas Education Agency will offer a new Staff Development waiver that provides for a maximum of 2,100 total waiver minutes to use for professional development. The waiver is only applicable to the 2018-2019 school year and will require only minimal information.

Each district and open-enrollment charter school may choose how to apply their approved Staff Development waiver minutes each year. For instance, schools may choose to offer early release, late start, all day staff development or a combination. However, the total waiver minutes for staff development shall not exceed 2,100 minutes per year.

Waiver minutes are for staff development in place of student instruction; therefore, the waiver minutes are only applicable to staff development provided instead of student instruction during the school year.
Budgetary Impact: None
Recommendation: Recommend approval of the Professional Development waiver for 2,100 minutes for the 2018-19 school year.
