The 85th Texas Legislature will convene January 10, 2017 and remain in regular session until May 29, 2017. As public education is one of the largest entities in the state and its funding is second only to healthcare, 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 Agenda for the 85th Legislative Session on October 26, 2016. The agenda contains four main topics that are sure to be discussed between the chambers this session including school funding, vouchers, assessments and local control.
More information on these legislative topics can be found here on our website.
If you would like to know more information on specific legislation or share your suggestions and ideas about important issues with your legislators, we have provided links to the Texas House of Representatives, the Texas Senate and contact information for your elected officials on our site.
