This week, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick released 116 Senate Committee charges to study in the interim before the 2021 legislative session, including one to review the impact of HB3 on G/T programs in Texas.
With the passing of House Bill 3 and the new Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented Students this summer, the TAGT Board of Directors has created a task force to explore the implications and member needs stemming from these changes. Our goal is to ensure that TAGT: meets member needs as they navigate the new law and state plan; continues effective advocacy efforts with the state in creating the rules around HB3; and effectively prepares for the interim and 87th legislative session (2021).
The partnership between TEA and Texas Association for the Gifted & Talented (TAGT) is more important than ever as we work to ensure that students identified gifted & talented (G/T) continue to be served under the new legislation. TAGT submitted this letter to TEA last week, take a look and stay tuned for updates.
