Every four years, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) conducts a comprehensive review of the Texas Rising Star (TRS) program. The comprehensive review is performed in addition to any changes that were made during the four-year period. TWC is beginning the comprehensive review of TRS, which is scheduled to be completed in 2020. Stakeholders are a critical component of this review.
TWC has established a TRS workgroup to help inform the review. The TRS workgroup will review all of the input received and make recommendations for TWC to consider in the development of new TRS Guidelines. This includes input from TWC-funded research that was conducted by the Children’s Learning Institute (CLI) at the University of Texas Health Science Center, Houston. CLI’s initial findings are available now. A link to this information is included under “Workgroup Resources.” The TRS workgroup also will consider input from stakeholders. Child care providers and other stakeholders are invited to submit input to TWC.
