The board approved most of the revisions in April of 2011 but had a few questions about the Computer Science courses. The remaining courses got their final approval in July of 2011.

The new TEKS have been inserted into the Chapter 126.  These TEKS will not go into effect until the 2012-2013 school year therefore on the TEA site, the old TA-TEKS are listed above the new TA-TEKS. For clarity, below are the direct links to the new TA-TEKS:
