State and Regional Councils
State P-16 Council
The State P-16 Council membership consists of the Commissioners of K-12, Higher Education, Texas Workforce Commission and the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services. The State P-16 Council meets quarterly to provide leadership on P-16 college readiness issues and support the development of Regional P-16 Councils.
The Regional P-16 Councils membership includes local and regional K-12, higher education, and business leaders. Regional P-16 Councils work to address the complex issues in their local education systems, while promoting a college-going culture. Regional councils serve the important purpose of strengthening the states’ progress towards the goals of Closing the Gaps.
