Bill Caption

Relating to the ability of certain students to enroll full-time in courses provided through the state virtual school network.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 947 would allow a student to enroll full-time in the state virtual school network if the student is in a military family stationed in Texas, and would remove the requirement that the student was enrolled in a public school the preceding year.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action recommends supporting SB 947 because it promotes limited government. This bill would lift unnecessary restrictions on enrollment in order to afford military families more flexibility in their education options.
