HB 1517 would require school districts with an enrollment of more than 10,000 students to give notice to parents if there is no full-time nurse at the school for 30 consecutive days. This would not apply if a school district employs more than one part-time nurse to cover a full school day.
Texas Action remains neutral on HB 1517 because it does not promote or violate any of our principles.
