Great News!  

Your advocacy worked!
HB1015 was passed unanimously by Senate Education Committee, with every Committee member signing on as a co-author!

HB1015 will allow some students with disabilities the option of an alternative pathway to earn a diploma. 

Congratulations to the hundreds of LaTEACH members who contacted their legislators about this issue and the more than 60 LaTEACH members who filled the Senate Education Committee room in purple to show their support for this monumental change!

The next stop is the full Senate.


Be Sure to Thank the Senate Education Committee Members and Representative Schroder!
