Bill Caption

Relating to the method of determining the average daily attendance in certain school districts.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State.

Local Government

No fiscal implication to units of local government are anticipated. The bill would apply only to Texhoma ISD.  The district is currently projected to have more than 90 students in average daily attendance for each year from fiscal year 2016 through fiscal year 2020 and would qualify for the FSP sparsity adjustment in each year under current law. Accordingly, the provisions of the bill are estimated to have no fiscal implications relative to current law for the district.

Bill Analysis

HB 2593 would enable the Texhoma independent school district to continue to receive the sparsity adjustment if the average daily attendance declined to a count of less than 90 students but still exceeded 75 students.

Vote Recommendation Notes

The bill affirms the principle of limited government. A function of government is to provide appropriate funding for government schools. This particular district serves students from Oklahoma, as well as Texas. This would ensure this district is able to receive adequate funding. For these reasons, we support HB 2593.

The second chamber sponsor is Senator Seliger.
