Education Preparation Program
The Texas Education Agency has created 2 separate trainings for Field Supervisors of Educator Preparation Programs.
This training was developed to meet the requirements of recently adopted Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §228.35(g) and (h). This section of TAC requires that “supervision of each candidate shall be conducted with the structured guidance and regular ongoing support of an experienced educator who has been trained as a field supervisor. Supervision provided on or after September 1, 2017, must be provided by a field supervisor who has completed TEA-approved observation training.”
