Bill Caption

Relating to information printed by school districts on high school diplomas.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication.

Bill Analysis

HB 181 would amend Education Code to provide that a student's endorsement that he or she earned will be printed on the transcript, rather than the diploma and transcript.

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill would make mostly administrative, clerical, or non-substantive updates to current code with no discernible connection to our liberty principles, therefore we are neutral on HB 181.  We note that the endorsement system was recently created, however, and making additional changes on a regular basis does not provide any consistency for the expectations and knowledge of students and educators.
