Pending Rules and Policies


The following rules have been approved by the State Board of Education.  Rules must go before the Board on two readings.  After approval on final reading, they are submitted for the rule promulgation process, which includes review by the Attorney General and filing with the Secretary of State. Revised rules become effective 90 days after publication in the Tennessee Administrative Register, absent a stay of the effective date by the Government Operations Committee or the request for rulemaking hearing.

Links to meeting agendas where rules were heard on first or final reading are included below along with effective rules that have been fully promulgated.  Fully promulgated rules are removed from this page once the Effective Date has passed.

You may also view pending rules on the Secretary of State’s webpage.



Policies take effect upon Board approval on final reading.  Once approved they will be posted on the Policies page on our website.
