FISCAL NOTE, 83RD LEGISLATIVE REGULAR SESSION
 
March 4, 2013

TO:
Honorable Jimmie Don Aycock, Chair, House Committee On Public Education
 
FROM:
Ursula Parks, Director, Legislative Budget Board
 
IN RE:
HB753 by Villarreal (Relating to certain information to be provided by school districts to parents concerning supplemental educational services.), As Introduced

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

The bill would require school districts to provide parents with information about supplemental education services (SES) that would foster improvement in a studentís academic performance. 
 
The bill would require the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to provide school districts with information about SES that had been demonstrated through rigorous research to be likely to improve a studentís academic performance, including the minimum number of tutoring hours required to improve performance. TEA is not aware of any current research that meets the standards proposed in this bill, and would be required to contract for an appropriate study.

Based on the analysis of TEA, the duties and responsibilities associated with implementing the provisions of the bill could be accomplished by utilizing existing resources.


Local Government Impact

No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
