Best Practices

In accordance with statutory requirements established by TEC §38.351, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) coordinates with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and Education Service Centers (ESCs) to annually review a list of recommended best-practice based programs, and research-based practices, for public schools. In collaboration, these entities have compiled a list of practices and programs to create the Mental and Behavioral Health Recommended Best Practices and Programs Repository. The repository includes important practices and programs for school leader’s consideration. These resources are intended to support mental and behavioral health along with academic achievement.
