COVID-19 & Texas Law

This guide is updated to reflect information pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic. Information in this guide is subject to change at any time.


Safety Requirements for Schools

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is the state agency tasked with overseeing public education for grades K-12 in Texas, with oversight of both independent school districts and charter schools. TEA has issued guidance on various COVID-19-related issues that affect public schools in Texas.

At the federal level, the U.S. Department of Education and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention have also issued guidance for K-12 schools. 

Most school districts have also created their own plans that outline the school's safety protocols. Check your school district's website or contact them directly for a copy of these plans.
