Texas Register Preamble

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (Coordinating Board) proposes amendments to §§4.53 - 4.55 and 4.58 - 4.60, concerning Texas Success Initiative. Specifically, these amendments will add new definitions and required components of developmental education programs for Texas public institutions of higher education.

Dr. Judith Loredo, Assistant Commissioner, P-16 Initiatives, has determined that for each year of the first five years the sections are in effect, there will not be any fiscal implications to state or local government as a result of enforcing or administering the rules.

Dr. Loredo has also determined that for each year of the first five years the sections are in effect, the public benefit anticipated as a result of administering the section will be the improvement of persistence and success of entering college freshmen determined not to be college ready. There is no effect on small or micro-businesses. There are no anticipated economic costs to persons who are required to comply with the section as proposed. There is no impact on local employment.

Comments on the proposal may be submitted to Suzanne Morales-Vale, Director of Developmental and Adult Basic Education, Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, P.O. Box 12788, Austin, TX 78711 or suzanne.morales-vale@thecb.state.tx.us. Comments will be accepted for 30 days following publication of the proposal in the Texas Register.

The amendments are proposed under the Texas Education Code, §51.307, which provides the Coordinating Board with the authority to adopt rules to implement the provisions of Texas Education Code, §51.3062, concerning the Texas Success Initiative.

The amendments affect Texas Education Code, §51.3062.
