Bill Caption

Relating to the discipline and behavior management of a public school student.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 3219 would allow a campus behavior coordinator at a public school to create a behavior contract stating that appropriate disciplinary action may be taken against a student who violates the district's student code of conduct if the student continues to engage in the violative behavior, and to authorize the coordinator to require the student and parent to sign the contract as a condition of not taking immediate disciplinary action. 

This bill would also specify that the requirement for a disciplinary alternative education program to provide for students' education and behavioral needs includes the administration of relevant behavioral assessments. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on HB 3219 because it does not promote or violate any of our principles.
