Program Transition

On May 18, 2013, Governor Rick Perry signed Texas Senate Bill (SB) 307, 83rd Legislature, Regular Session (2013), which transferred responsibility for adult education from the Texas Education Agency to TWC.

Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) rules were adopted by TWC on February 4, 2014. The AEL rules position TWC to reestablish and prioritize adult education and literacy services for Texas around current and future education demands and workforce development needs, fully implementing the intent and objectives of the Texas Legislature outlined in SB 307, as well as direction provided by the Commission and stakeholder input.

TEAMS, AEGIS and CredITS Transition

The online systems TEAMS, AEGIS and CredITS are moving this summer from TEA to TWC. With the move, system user access requirements and your login process will change.

If you are a current adult education and literacy provider who frequently uses the TEAMS and AEGIS systems, join TWC Adult Education and Literacy staff in a series of webinars to learn about the transition process, including what current system users need to do now to get access to those applications after July 15, 2014. All providers who currently use the system should participate, regardless of whether you submitted a proposal under RFP 320-14-10, Texas Adult Education and Literacy Programs Provider Proposal for PY14-15.

The webinars are not training for Offerors who have responded to Request for Proposal 320-14-10, Texas Adult Education and Literacy Programs. Offerors who are awarded contracts under that RFP will receive specialized instructions and training for accessing and using TEAMS.

If you have questions about the webinars, email teams.technicalassistance@twc.state.tx.us. After each webinar, we will post materials from them below.
