ProStart Program Requirements
As outlined by the TRF 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:
- Facilities – Commercial Grade Facility (please see Making the Transition guide on www.texasprostart.com/facilities for tips on commercializing your traditional kitchen).
- Training –. Instructors must have professional industry knowledge and/or plan to acquire knowledge through short courses/conferences offered by the Texas Restaurant Foundation.
- Support – Support of your administration.
- Involvement – Community Involvement.
- 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, TRF 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.
