The COVID-19 pandemic has further emphasized the need to provide and protect the flexibility and support necessary to address every student’s individual needs in our education system.
That’s why we’re working to protect educational opportunities for our students—through various avenues such as charter schools and virtual education.
Recently introduced legislation, Senate Bill 28 and House Bill 3279 will allow more students in Texas to receive an education that meets their unique needs by ensuring local governments do not unfairly implement red tape to limit the operation of charter schools.
Other legislation, Senate Bill 27, will expand educational options for Texas students by removing enrollment caps for virtual learning. Enrollment caps were intended to limit the size of classes in physical buildings and should no longer apply if the learning is happening virtually.
By passing these bills, lawmakers will ensure families and students have the freedom to explore learning environments that provide the foundation for a successful future.
Urge your lawmakers to break barriers to educational opportunities and support SB28/HB 3279 and SB 27!
