Relating to excused absences from public school for certain
students to obtain a driver ’s license or learner license.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 289 would allow a school district to excuse students from one day of school for the purpose of obtaining a driver's license or learner's permit.
Texas Action supports SB 289 on the principle of individual liberty. Allowing students these days off at the discretion of the district aids the personal freedom of Texas students.
