Relating to reporting certain truancy information through the Public Education Information Management System.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 548 would require school districts and open-enrollment charter schools to report truancy numbers to the Public Education Information Management System. School districts would be required to include the number of students required to attend but fail to attend school for 10 consecutive days without excuse within a six month period, the number of students a school district initiates a truancy prevention measure, and the number of parents of students against whom an attendance officer or other appropriate school official has filed a complaint.
Texas Action remains neutral on HB 548 because it does not promote or violate any of our principles.
