Bill Caption

Relating to the operation of open-enrollment charter schools on Memorial Day.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.


Bill Analysis

HB 109 would prohibit open-enrollment charter schools from holding classes on Memorial Day. In the rare event that an open-enrollment charter school would be required to have classes on Memorial Day, such as making up hours for the loss of time during extreme weather conditions, the Texas Education Commissioner would be required to allow for a shorter than average school day. This policy already exists for public schools.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on HB 109 because it does not promote or violate any of our principles.
