Today marks the beginning of the 83rd legislative session in Texas. As always, education issues will be a major focus in this session. Accountability, standardized testing, school funding, vouchers, and local control of districts are all topics that have been widely discussed over the past year. There will be numerous bills filed that address each of these topics. In addition, there is sure to be much debate about school safety. As always, information about proposed bills and the impact those bills will have on EISD will be passed on to the constituents of EISD.
