Governor Abbott Signs SB 490
The number of school counselors at each campus in Texas will now be readily available in each school’s Texas Academic Performance Report. (TAPR), published annually by TEA, as result of your calls and advocacy.
The collaboration of ALL TCA members to support School Counselors achieved this great result.
The fact that Governor Abbott signed this bill is another indicator of how strong the voice of TCA and its members is in influencing public policy and raising awareness of the important work of school counselors! Congratulations.
SB 490 is just one of the bills that supports school counselors that passed this session in Texas.
June 18, 2017 is the deadline for Governor Abbott to veto legislation. Any bills that he does not veto automatically become law.
TCA will provide a
Legislative Update late this month to reflect final actions on bills that we tracked this session.
