Bill Caption

Relating to evaluation under the state accountability system of school district campuses that enroll certain students who receive special education services.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 2797 would require the commissioner of the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to create accountability guidelines for specialized support campuses that serve students who receive special education services. The campuses would be able to submit an alternative accountability plan for approval to the commissioner of education. The education commissioner would then be required to submit to the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Speaker of the House, and standing committee with jurisdiction over public education, a report on the effectiveness of these campuses submitting their own accountability plan. This requirement would sunset September 1, 2023.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on HB 2797 because it does not impact our principles.
