The State Board of Education (SBOE) is an elected board of fifteen members that oversees the public education system of Texas in accordance with the Texas Education Code (statute). The rules of the SBOE as well as the rules of the Commissioner of Education (who is appointed by the Governor) are contained in the Texas Administrative Code (TAC). In simplistic terms, the SBOE and the Commissioner write for rules for school districts to follow that carry out and enforce the law.
