As reading and writing are foundational to school success, TEA is working to ensure that all Texas students have access to high-quality reading and writing instruction and highly-effective teachers. House bill 3 requires that all K-3 teachers and administrators complete the TXRA training within 3 years: 2020-2021, 2021-2022, and 2023.
