Texas Education Agency (TEA) has announced key partnerships to implement critical functions of the Texas Virtual School Network (TXVSN), including professional development for teaching online. Prior to teaching courses offered via the TXVSN, instructors are required to take TXVSN-approved professional development that specifically focuses on learning to teach effectively in the online environment. Information about course offerings, professional development, and participation in the TXVSN is available online at http://www.txvsn.org. Questions about the TXVSN should be sent to the TXVSN central operations at TXVSNCentral@txvsn.org or call 1-866-93TXVSN (1-866-938-9876).
