Relating to establishing residency for purposes of admission into public schools.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 1597 would allow for a parent that is in active military service to submit a copy of their orders or transfer to a military base as a proof of residency to admit their children to a public school, provided that they provide proof of residence within ten days after the arrival date on their orders.
Texas Action recommends supporting HB 1597 because it promotes limited government by reducing an administrative burden in the school enrollment process for people moving to Texas on military orders.
