As you may have already heard, HB3 passed the Texas House and moved to the Senate! As for G/T funding, HB 3 includes strengthened requirements around policy for and reporting of G/T expenditures and services. If you contacted your state representative, thank you! This is a HUGE and positive step forward for public school funding in Texas, but now it is time to contact your state senator to ask them to support HB3 in the Senate. Info on the amendments to HB3 regarding G/T funding can be found HERE.
