TEA Asynchronous Requirements

  • The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has outlined specific guidance on preparing for remote instruction. One such method of remote learning is asynchronous instruction. Districts and charter schools are required to devise a plan that addresses four key requirements:

    • Instructional Schedule: Expectations for when and in what setting students are learning - loosely equivalent to an on-campus instructional day
    • Material Design: Curriculum must be designed for asynchronous student learning
    • Student Progress: Daily student progress is defined and measured
    • Implementation: The LEA must provide educators with support to provide remote instruction

ESC Region 11 Technical Assistance

  • To help meet the four key requirements within asynchronous planning, ESC Region 11 will provide districts and charter schools with the following:

    • Instructional Schedule: Technical assistance in the review of asynchronous plans 
    • Material Design: Support utilizing the TEKS Resources System and the Texas Home Learning 3.0 model for instructional design
    • Student Progress: Virtual coaching focused on daily student goal setting that is attainable and measurable
    • Implementation: Professional development offerings geared toward educators that is content specific and meets the need for teaching in a virtual environment

Note:

  • Many district personnel attended the July 23rd Asynchronous Planning meeting with colleagues to collaborate and provide insight on plans for asynchronous instruction in their districts. This session will be repeated per request. In addition, ESC Region 11 will provide access to the slide deck from the July 23rd learning experience.
