|(a) At the end of the suspension period designated by the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC), the person whose certificate was suspended may submit a written request that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) staff reinstate the certificate, together with proof of compliance with the order of suspension, and payment of the appropriate fee. The TEA staff shall run a criminal background check on an educator who requests reinstatement of a suspended certificate and may deny the reinstatement based on any subsequent criminal history or other misconduct occurring or discovered after the effective date of the order suspending the certificate. The educator must also meet all other requirements necessary to maintain educator certification or, if applicable, to reactivate an inactive standard certificate. (b) A record of reinstatement of the certificate shall become part of the educator's official certification records and shall be recorded on the educator's virtual certificate together with the record of the suspension.
