Sharon Bradley, PISD Director of Family & Social Services, testified in support of HB 4454. This bill calls for statewide Social Emotional Learning standards, which could benefit every student in Texas. The testimony begins at 50 minutes into the 4/17 Public Education Committee video.
This legislative report shows that HB 3 would decrease Plano ISD’s recapture by ~$100 million and increase the per-student allotment by $640 in fiscal year 2020.It passed a House vote on April 4 and will probably be heard in the Senate Education Committee next week. Texas PTA supports HB 3.
