The 87th Texas Legislature will convene January 12, 2021 and remain in regular session until May 31 2021. As public education is one of the largest entities in the state and its funding is second only to health care, the decisions of our legislators affect every community. Coppell ISD will be active in keeping you, our tax payers, informed and will work with our elected officials on proposed legislation that could impact the Texas public education system, our district and students.

The Coppell ISD School Board approved the district’s Legislative Priorities for the 87th Legislative Session on September 28, 2020. The priorities include:
