    The Texas Education Telecommunications Network (TETN) is a cooperative of Education Service Centers (ESCs) and Texas Education Agency (TEA). The mission of TETN is to facilitate communications among educational entities throughout Texas to improve student performance and to increase efficiency of educational operations via an effective telecommunications network. Videoconferences are offered and meetings are held to keep administrators and educators informed.

    Conferences can be fed to your own videoconferencing equipment through remote bridging eliminating your need to travel. Examine the TETN Events Calendar and select TETN to see sessions.
