The bill would make no appropriation but could provide the legal basis for an appropriation of funds to
implement the provisions of the bill.
SB 1697 would allow parents or legal guardians the option of letting their children repeat a grade or certain courses if the child has not previously met the requirements for that grade or course.
Texas Action supports SB 1697 on the principle of limited government. Allowing parents the freedom to exercise control over their child's advancement as proposed by this bill would help ensure the students are truly ready for progression.
