Bill Caption

Relating to school district notification to a parent of physical fitness assessment results of the parent’s child.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.


Bill Analysis

HB 128 would require schools to provide parents a copy of their child's results of a physical fitness assessment. The bill would require schools to provide a notice and then provide the fitness results before the last day of the school year. Current law states that parents can request a physical copy of their child's physical fitness assessment. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action supports HB 128. This bill will provide parents with information they should have access to without having to request it. It is questionable policy at best for school districts to be required to make physical fitness assessments of students but so long as they do, parents should know the results.
