The Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented Students will go before the SBOE Committee on Instruction on June 13, 2019.
The Texas Legislature finally finished its work on House Bill 3, the school finance and property tax reform bill that increases public education funding by $4.5 billion and earmarks more than $5 billion for school property tax compression. Although we are disappointed that designated funding for G/T services has been repealed, we are so proud of TAGT and our members' advocacy efforts. Through your constant emails, Twitter advocacy, and hours sitting together at the Capitol, the changes that we were able to make in the final bill highlight the importance of serving our unique G/T students. In the new law, districts are required to continue G/T services and G/T requirements and certifications have been strengthened, in addition to the significant additional investment from the state to our schools.
Since early May, House Bill 3 has been in Conference Committee, made up of Senate and House delegates, working to negotiate differences in their versions of HB 3. Last night, the committee released the final version of the 300+ page bill.
