Texas Register Preamble

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (Coordinating Board) adopts amendments to §4.54, concerning the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), to incorporate into existing rules changes that address the college readiness benchmarks for the new College Board SAT examinations administered on or after March 5, 2016 without changes to the proposed text as published in the May 27, 2016, issue of the Texas Register (41 TexReg 3807). Specifically, the amendment to §4.54(a)(1)(B), the TSI exemption for the SAT examinations, would add the college readiness benchmarks set by The College Board and would provide additional clarification of rule application.

No comments were received concerning these amendments.

The amendments are adopted under Texas Education Code (TEC), §51.3062, which provides the Coordinating Board with the authority to establish policies and procedures relating to the TSI and §51.307, which provides the Coordinating Board with the authority to adopt and publish rules and regulations to effectuate the provisions of Chapter 51, Subchapter F of the TEC.
