Bill Caption

Relating to eliminating the requirement that a school district assess the physical fitness of students.

Fiscal Notes

There is no significant fiscal implication to the State or local government.

Bill Analysis

HB 1227 would repeal Subchapter C, Chapter 38, Education Code, which requires school districts to assess the physical fitness of students in grade 3 or higher and makes conforming changes.

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill affirms the principle of limited government by removing a mandate to schools to assess students' physical fitness. For this reason, we support HB 1227.
