Bill Caption

Relating to the inclusion of certain students as students at risk of dropping out of school.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 1746 would change the definition of students who are at risk of dropping out to include students who have been incarcerated or have parents that have been incarcerated within the student's lifetime. If included on the list, these students will be allowed to receive certain benefits that other at-risk students receive, such as counseling and academic enhancement services.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on SB 1746 because it does not promote or violate any of our principles.
