Information from TEA
• As a result of school information in the “other” category, they
have increased the number of certifications on the PER almost
50%
• The list on the PER is not meant to be directive or exclusive
• Districts should offer certificate/licensure exams that are
reasonable for the district and region and are beneficial to
students – whether the exam is on the PER or not
• The sole purpose of the PER list is to collect data to report to the
USDA for the 2S1 core indicator
• The information reported is the percentage of students that pass,
not the quantity of students that take an exam
• The threshold for exams on the PER list are: end of program,
industry-recognized, available and appropriate for secondary
students
