Bill Caption

Relating to information regarding the number of school counselors in public schools.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

Under current law, each school district and open-enrollment charter school is required to submit certain information to the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS). SB 490 would require these schools to include in their PEIMS reporting information regarding the availability of “full-time equivalent counselors” (individuals who spend at least 40 hours a week counseling).

Vote Recommendation Notes

SB 490 neither uplifts nor offends our liberty principles, therefore we remain neutral.
