6. Consider and Take Appropriate Action on the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) Between the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) and the Texas Education Agency (TEA)

This item presents the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to consider and ratify the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) that clarifies the process by which the TEA will continue to provide the SBEC's administrative services and functions pursuant to the Texas Education Code (TEC), §21.035. This MOA reflects the current commissioner as a signee, updates dates, and clarifies that the MOA continues in operation absent a decision by one of the parties to end the agreement.

7. Consider and Take Appropriate Action on Proposed Revisions to Board Operating Policies and Procedures (BOPP)

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) the opportunity to revise the Board Operating Policies and Procedures (BOPP). The proposed revisions would add procedures regarding the webcasts of SBEC regular and special meetings, whenever feasible; require written materials offered in lieu of oral comment to be submitted no later than 30 minutes prior to the meeting; remove the Code of Ethics Review Committee; remove the signature requirement for SBEC minutes; add clarification of the 30-day public comment period for proposed rule reviews and rule actions; and provide technical edits.

8. Consider and Take Appropriate Action on 2015-2018 Rule Review Plan for State Board for Educator Certification Rules

This item provides an opportunity for the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) to approve a proposed four-year rule review plan for SBEC rules. Texas Government Code, §2001.039, requires a rule review of existing state agency rules, including SBEC rules. The rule review requirement in Texas Government Code, §2001.039, is designed to ensure that the reasons for initially adopting the rule continue to exist.

9. Adoption of Proposed Amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 231, Requirements for Public School Personnel Assignments, Subchapter B, Prekindergarten-Grade 6 Assignments, and Subchapter C, Grades 6-8 Assignments

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to adopt, subject to State Board of Education (SBOE) review, proposed amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 231, Requirements for Public School Personnel Assignments, Subchapter B, Prekindergarten-Grade 6 Assignments, and Subchapter C, Grades 6-8 Assignments. The proposed amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 231, Subchapters B and C, would add the new Core Subjects: Early Childhood-Grade 6 and Core Subjects: Grades 4-8 certificates to every assignment that currently includes the Generalist: Early Childhood-Grade 6 and/or Generalist: Grades 4-8 certificates as an appropriate credential for placement in a particular teaching assignment.

10. Adoption of Proposed Amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 233, Categories of Classroom Teaching Certificates, §§233.1, 233.2, 233.6, 233.7, and 233.13

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to adopt, subject to State Board of Education (SBOE) review, proposed amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 233, Categories of Classroom Teaching Certificates, §§233.1, General Authority; 233.2, Generalist; 233.6, Bilingual Education; 233.7, English as a Second Language; and 233.13, Career and Technical Education (Certificates not requiring experience and preparation in a skill area). The proposed amendment to 19 TAC §233.2 would add new certificates for Core Subjects: Early Childhood-Grade 6 and Core Subjects: Grades 4-8 to be issued no earlier than January 1, 2015. The proposed amendments to 19 TAC §§233.2, 233.6, and 233.7 would add deadlines for completion and submission requirements for the last group of Generalist certificates the SBEC will issue. The proposed amendment to 19 TAC §233.13 would remove language relating to expiration of certain sections of the rule and, instead, would provide deadlines for completion and submission requirements for the last group of Agricultural Science and Technology: Grades 6-12 and Business Education: Grades 6-12 certificates the SBEC will issue. The proposed amendments to 19 TAC §233.1 and §233.13 would update administrative rule references.

11. Adoption of Proposed Amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 249, Disciplinary Proceedings, Sanctions, and Contested Cases, Subchapter B, Enforcement Actions and Guidelines, §249.15, Disciplinary Action by State Board for Educator Certification, and §249.16, Eligibility of Persons with Criminal Convictions for a Certificate under Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 53

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to adopt, subject to State Board of Education (SBOE) review, proposed amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 249, Disciplinary Proceedings, Sanctions, and Contested Cases, Subchapter B, Enforcement Actions and Guidelines, §249.15, Disciplinary Action by State Board for Educator Certification, and §249.16, Eligibility of Persons with Criminal Convictions for a Certificate under Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 53. The proposed amendment to 19 TAC §249.15 would conform this section to the proposed amendments approved by the SBEC to 19 TAC Chapter 229, Accountability System for Educator Preparation Programs. The proposed amendment to 19 TAC §249.16 would clarify that multiple statutory provisions provide the basis for certification actions based on criminal history.

12. Update and Discussion of Core Subjects EC-6 and Core Subjects 4-8 Tests

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an update on the new Core Subjects EC-6 and Core Subjects 4-8 tests scheduled for implementation in January 2015.

13. Consider and Take Appropriate Action on Passing Standards for Core Subjects EC-6 and Core Subjects 4-8 Tests

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) the opportunity to review and approve passing standards for the new Core Subjects EC-6 and Core Subjects 4-8 tests. These passing standards will allow test results to be calculated and reported to candidates taking these examinations. Candidates in preparation programs need to demonstrate content mastery in particular subject areas in order to qualify for their certificates. This item requests consideration for the SBEC to review and approve a new passing standard for the examinations as recommended by the standard-setting committees of educators.

14. Proposed Amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 229, Accountability System for Educator Preparation Programs, §229.9, Fees for Educator Preparation Program Approval and Accountability, and Chapter 230, Professional Educator Preparation and Certification, Subchapter G, Certificate Issuance Procedures, §230.101, Schedule of Fees for Certification Services

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to discuss and propose amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 229, Accountability System for Educator Preparation Programs, §229.9, Fees for Educator Preparation Program Approval and Accountability, and Chapter 230, Professional Educator Preparation and Certification, Subchapter G, Certificate Issuance Procedures, §230.101, Schedule of Fees for Certification Services. As part of its report to the 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013, the Sunset Advisory Commission recommended a management action that fees in rule for educator certification and educator preparation programs (EPPs) be evaluated and adjusted to cover costs and ensure equity. The proposed amendments to 19 TAC §229.9 and §230.101 would adjust certain fees to more adequately cover costs and increase the equity of fees across different types of fee payers.

15. Proposed New 19 TAC Chapter 228, Requirements for Educator Preparation Programs, §228.70, Complaints and Investigations

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to discuss and propose new 19 TAC Chapter 228, Requirements for Educator Preparation Programs, §228.70, Complaints and Investigations Procedures. As part of its report to the 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013, the Sunset Advisory Commission recommended a management action that procedures for educator preparation program (EPP) complaints outline all phases of the EPP complaint process, as well as track and analyze complaint data. The proposed new rule would establish procedures for filing a complaint against an EPP, impose specific responsibilities on an EPP regarding complaints, and establish the consequences if an EPP is found to be in violation of SBEC rules and/or state or federal statutes.

16. Proposed Amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 229, Accountability System for Educator Preparation Programs, §229.4, Determination of Accreditation Status, §229.5, Accreditation Sanctions and Procedures, and §229.6, Continuing Approval

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to discuss and propose amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 229, Accountability System for Educator Preparation Programs, §229.4, Determination of Accreditation Status, §229.5, Accreditation Sanctions and Procedures, and §229.6, Continuing Approval. As part of its report to the 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013, the Sunset Advisory Commission recommended a management action that procedures for educator preparation program (EPP) complaints outline all phases of the EPP complaint process, including resulting sanctions. Proposed new 19 TAC Chapter 228, Requirements for Educator Preparation Programs, §228.70, Complaints and Investigations, would add these procedures in rule, and, as a result, proposed amendments to Chapter 229 are necessary.

17. Proposed Revisions to 19 TAC Chapter 231, Requirements for Public School Personnel Assignments, Subchapter E, Grades 9-12 Assignments

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to discuss and propose revisions to 19 TAC Chapter 231, Requirements for Public School Personnel Assignments, Subchapter E, Grades 9-12 Assignments. The proposed revisions to 19 TAC Chapter 231, Subchapter E, would clarify the appropriate credential for placement in a particular teaching assignment and ensure alignment with changes to public school curriculum as a result of House Bill 5, 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013.

18. Proposed Amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 233, Categories of Classroom Teaching Certificates, §§233.3, 233.4, 233.5, and 233.14

The proposed amendments to 19 TAC §§233.3-233.5 and 233.14 would add deadlines for completion and submission requirements for specific Grades 8-12 certificates in the subject areas of English Language Arts and Reading, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, Technology Applications and Computer Science, and Career and Technical Education (Certificates requiring experience and preparation in a skill area).

19. Proposed Review and Discussion of 19 TAC Chapter 241, Principal Certificate

Texas Government Code, §2001.039, establishes a four-year rule review cycle for all state agency rules, including State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) rules. This item presents the proposed review and discussion of 19 TAC Chapter 241, Principal Certificate. The SBEC plans to review, discuss, and propose changes to 19 TAC Chapter 241 in the coming months based on the work of stakeholder meetings. Given the breadth of input and resulting rule changes expected, it is necessary to reset the four-year rule review cycle of this chapter to begin October 2014 to conduct the review concurrently with the stakeholder meetings.

20. Proposed Review and Discussion of 19 TAC Chapter 242, Superintendent Certificate

Texas Government Code, §2001.039, establishes a four-year rule review cycle for all state agency rules, including State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) rules. This item presents the proposed review and discussion of 19 TAC Chapter 242, Superintendent Certificate. The SBEC plans to review, discuss, and propose changes to 19 TAC Chapter 242 in the coming months based on the work of stakeholder meetings. Given the breadth of input and resulting rule changes expected, it is necessary to reset the four-year rule review cycle of this chapter to begin October 2014 to conduct the review concurrently with the stakeholder meetings.

21. Update on Proposed Revisions to 19 TAC Chapter 227, Provisions for Educator Preparation Candidates

Texas Education Code (TEC), §21.042, requires the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) to submit a written copy of each rule it proposes to adopt to the State Board of Education (SBOE) for review. At its September 2014 meeting, the SBOE reviewed and rejected the proposed revisions to 19 TAC Chapter 227, Provisions for Educator Preparation Candidates. The Texas Education Agency staff will provide an update and status on the proposed revisions to 19 TAC Chapter 227.

22. Discussion of 19 TAC Chapter 230, Professional Educator Preparation and Certification, Subchapter D, Types and Classes of Certificates Issued, §230.37, Probationary Certificates, and Subchapter F, Permits, §230.77, Specific Requirements for Initial Emergency Permits

The purpose of the informal meeting is for TDI to provide information to and receive comments and information from all interested parties. Staff and stakeholders will informally discuss the preliminary estimates of the projected rates of assessment, the supporting documentation and methodology of the process for determining the estimated projected rates of assessment and fees, and the draft rules to establish the rates of each tax and assessment.

AGENDA
October 27, 2014

1. CALL TO ORDER 8:30 AM

2. REVIEW OF THE AGENDA

3. THE TEXAS BOARD OF NURSING WILL MEET TO CONSIDER AND TAKE ACTION ON THE FOLLOWING:

A. CONSIDERATION OF TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF REGISTERED NURSE LICENSE #716018

Issued to: LAURA CARMINA GRIMALDO

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code ann. §301.455, immediate action is required of the Texas Board of Nursing because the continued practice of Laura Carmina Grimaldo poses a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

On or about December 26, 2013, while employed as a Registered Nurse with Doctors Hospital, Laredo, Texas, Respondent attempted to take her own life by injecting herself with 15ml of Diprivan. Respondent's conduct could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, and changes in the patients' conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing patients in potential danger.

On or about July 26, 2014, while employed as a Registered Nurse with Solara Hospital, Harlingen, Texas, Respondent left her patient assignment without notifying an appropriate supervisor and was found an hour later in the bathroom. Additionally, bloody tissues and discarded intravenous tubing were discovered on the bathroom floor. Respondent s conduct was likely to injure her patients in that leaving a patient assignment could have resulted in the patients not getting the care he or she needed.

On or about August 1, 2014, while employed as a Registered Nurse with Solara Hospital, Harlingen, Texas, Respondent left her patient assignment without notifying an appropriate supervisor. Additionally, when Respondent returned to the unit, she lacked fitness to practice professional nursing in that she exhibited signs of impairment, including, but not limited to: uncoordinated walking, unsteady gait, and an altered mental status. Further, Respondent had a HeparinlLock in her arm. Respondent s conduct could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate and appropriate assessments, judgments and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.

On or about October 4, 2014, while employed as a Travel Nurse with AMN Healthcare, Denver, Colorado, and on assignment at Valley Baptist Hospital, Harlingen, Texas, Respondent was found on the bathroom floor of the Neuro/Trauma Intensive Care Unit (ICU) unconscious and barely breathing. Respondent had injected herself with Propofol (Diprivan) IV, had a Heparin lock in her upper right arm with an attached syringe, and a syringe was found on the floor. Subsequently, Respondent was taken to the Emergency Department and then transferred to the facility s Behavioral Health Unit. The use of Diprivan by a Registered Nurse, while subject to call or duty, could impair the nurse's ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, and changes in the patients' conditions, and could impair the nurse's ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing patients in potential danger.

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. § 301.455, the Board is required to take immediate action based upon the above conduct. Respondent s continued practice constitutes a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

B. CONSIDERATION OF TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF VOCATIONAL NURSE LICENSE #179788

Issued to: MICKIE MICHELLE PATRICK

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code ann. §301.4551, immediate action is required of
the Texas Board of Nursing because the continued practice of Mickie Michelle Patrick poses a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

On or about September 4, 2014, Respondent became noncompliant with the Agreed Order issued to her by the Texas Board of Nursing on July 19, 2012. Noncompliance is the result of Respondent's failure to abstain from alcohol in that she submitted a specimen for a random urine screen that resulted positive for Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG) and Ethyl Sulfate (EtS), which are metabolites of alcohol. Stipulation Number Thirteen (13) of the Order dated July 19, 2012, states, in pertinent part:

"RESPONDENT SHALL abstain from the consumption of alcohol, Nubain, Stadol, Dalgan, Ultram, or other synthetic opiates, and/or the use of controlled substances, except as prescribed by a licensed practitioner for a legitimate purpose...."

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. § 301.4551, the Board is required to take immediate action based upon the above conduct. Respondent s continued practice constitutes a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.
