Character Education

School districts may implement character education programs for students and identify criteria for Character Plus Programs.

Programs offered under Texas Education Code §29.906 must meet the following criteria:

  • Stress positive character traits as outlined in the bill
  • Use integrated teaching strategies 
  • Be age appropriate

In selecting a character education program districts must also consult with parents of students, educators, and members of the community, including community leaders.

TEA must maintain a list of character education programs that meet the above criteria.
