Bill Caption

Relating to reporting information regarding public school disciplinary actions.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.


Bill Analysis

HB 65 would add out-of-school suspensions to reports regarding disciplinary actions. Under current law, school districts are only required to report expulsions and disciplinary alternative education placements. The bill would require the school district to provide, in detail, personal information about the student, the number of days the suspension included and also the reason for the suspension.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on HB 65 because it does not promote or violate any of our principles.
