Texas ProStart Program Requirements

ProStart Program Requirements

As outlined by the TRAEF and its board of directors, Texas has specific requirements for program fulfillment. All schools must meet the following requirements to be considered a ProStart/FS Prep program:

  1. Facilities. Commercial Grade Facility (please see Making the Transition guide on www.texasprostart.com for tips on commercializing your traditional kitchen).
  2. Training. Instructors must have professional industry knowledge and/or plan to acquire knowledge through short courses/conferences offered by the TRA Education Foundation.
  3. Support. Support of your administration.
  4. Involvement. Community Involvement.
  5. Texas ProStart Curriculum. Must order FS Prep Instructors resource kit and FS Prep teacher resources

that accompany FS Prep program.

If requirements 1 4 have not been met to date, TRAEF will be available to assist school districts in making this transition when the school is on board with the FS Prep/Texas ProStart program. We realize this transition may take some time.
