A Legislative Forum was recently held in Coppell giving legislative candidates representing the Coppell area an opportunity to discuss state and local school funding implications, the current status of school finance for the upcoming legislative session, and plans to keep the issue at the top of the agenda when the 81st Legislative Session begins on January 13, 2009 in Austin. Additional information concerning school finance will be updated throughout this legislative session and posted in the new Legislation area on the district's web site.
