2019-2022 TEA Renewal Announcement

Dear Texas PAL® Programs,

We are pleased to announce that PAL®’s parent organization, Workers Assistance Program, Inc (WAP) has successfully renewed PAL® as a Texas Education Agency (TEA) approved innovative course. This renewal begins with the school year 2019-2020 and continues through the end of 2021-2022 school year. This is exciting news for all of us!

Please note that the PEIM numbers will remain the same, and that schools must have a certified PAL® teacher in order to use our PEIM numbers. If your program does not have a fully certified PAL® instructor, please contact Tory Gant at tgant@palusa.org to start the certification process.

PAL® Innovative Course Update

View our Flyer. 

December 26, 2018

Attention Teachers and School Administrators:


The Peer Assistance and Leadership (PAL®) program is aware that schools and districts are always looking to prepare for future school years and what programming will be offered. With that, we are happy to share that we are currently in the process renewing both courses with the Texas Education Agency (TEA).

This is a normal and customary process that we follow according to TEA’s timeline. We will provide any updates as they are made known to us by TEA. The process typically takes several months to complete and we look forward to another successful outcome to this very important initiative.


Debra Ellison
Chief Executive Officer
Workers Assistance Program, Inc.
