Important announcement for Principal preparation: The TExES 068 state exam will be phased out over the next year. Eligible first-time test takes must take the test before December 31, 2018, and re-testers have until August 31, 2019 to pass the test. The new TExES 268 (Principal as Instructional Leader) and the Performance Assessment for School Leaders (PASL) assessments will be phased out during 2019.

Our last TExES 068 review session was held in Sept/Oct 2018, and we are no longer offering 068 review sessions. Thus, per the posted EDAD handbook policy, no additional first-time test takers will be approved to take the 068 exam unless they have met the requirements stated in the EDAD handbook.
