students. We invite you to continue sharing your ideas with other ACET members to thrive for
our students.

Greetings ACET Members and Guests:

We are excited to welcome you to our organization and the plans for the October 2021 Virtual
Conference. This fall’s conference theme is ACET: Actively Committed to Educating Texas.
ACET like all of you are excited about the new school year and are committed to providing the best
education possible for the children of Texas.
The conference is designed to provide state and federal program directors with the latest rules and
regulations from the Texas Education Agency and the US Department of Education. We are in the
process of establishing a program that we feel will benefit everyone. For those of you that are new
Program Directors, the pre-conference on October 26, will provide you with a broad overview of
programs and rules/responsibilities which could benefit you understanding how all of the programs
work together. It will also provide general overviews of many of the programs and their reporting
Registration for the conference will open on August 27th and the proposed agenda for the conference
will follow when completed by the Program Planning Committee. We anticipate that it will be posted by
September 13th.  You can be assured that we will be providing information from TEA concerning the
latest information available. You will find an FAQ and registration materials on the home page. Please refer to them for
information to register for the conference.
Dr. Mark Ybarra, President and Mr. Deon Quin, President Elect are providing excellent leadership in
establishing the program. We are looking forward to having you participate in our virtual conference.
Shirley Coleman, Executive Director
