FOLLOW-UP: 2019 LEGISLATIVE PREVIEW

We'd like to thank everyone who came out to our recent Evening Extra for the 2019 Legislative Preview. As always, we are grateful to our three area state legislators--State Senator Borris Miles, State Representative Shawn Thierry, and State Representative Gene Wu--for participating and letting us know their thoughts on the upcoming session.

Many people have requested the link to the Texas Commission on Public School Finance Final Report as mentioned by Rep. Wu. That link is: https://tea.texas.gov/Finance_and_Grants/State_Funding/Additional_Finance_Resources/Texas_Commission_on_Public_School_Finance/ (the link to the PDF report directly is https://tea.texas.gov/WorkArea/DownloadAsset.aspx?id=51539627491).

You can search for bills that are being filed by all of the legislators at the Texas Legislature Online: https://capitol.texas.gov/.  If you sign up for a free MyTLO account, you will also have the ability to track individual bills as they make their way through the legislative process: https://capitol.texas.gov/MnuMyTLO.aspx
 

Also in attendance was HISD Trustee Holly Flynn Vilaseca. She informed us that there are two upcoming Community Meetings, including the seeking of input for the superintendent search. The dates, times, and locations for the meetings are as follows:
