Action Item

Any participant in the Teaching Excellence program must gain their official Texas Educators Certification Fingerprints via Morphotrust (the official vendor of TEA/SBEC).  The 2007 Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 9 requiring fingerprint-based criminal background reviews for certain school employees in Texas Public schools. Senate Bill 9 is codified in Texas Education Code (TEC), Chapter 22, Subchapter C.
