Texas education officials have launched a new website, promising a more streamlined user experience.

A series of updates have been made to increase the navigability of the State Board of Education’s (SBOE) website. The new website is described in a news bulletin as “a comprehensive landing point for educators, parents, policymakers, and community members to stay informed about board action related to Texas education policies, rules, regulations, and curriculum updates.”

Some of the notable changes include a feature allowing users to access up-to-date information easily via the menu bar option “News & Updates” and another providing live and archived meeting resources, such as agendas, minutes, and summaries of actions via the menu bar option “Meetings.” Further down on the SBOE homepage, users can find icons leading them to a calendar of meetings, the live stream link to the meetings, and public testimony registration information with just one simple click.

To submit a comment on proposed rules, as well as to view rules information and more, SBOE has a link leading users to the Texas Education Agency’s website, which is still hosting this feature. Click “Related Content” on the menu bar of the SBOE homepage.

Moreover, the new website includes contact details for each SBOE member, making it easier for stakeholders to reach out with questions, comments, and requests.

“We are excited to unveil the new SBOE website as part of our ongoing commitment to transparency, communication, and excellence in education,” said SBOE Chair Aaron Kinsey (R-Midland) in a statement. “We believe this platform will empower stakeholders to engage with us more effectively and access the information they need to support student success.”
