                                A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
 1-1                                   AN ACT
 1-2     relating to written notice to certain parents of a public school
 1-3     student's unsatisfactory performance.
 1-5           SECTION 1.  Sections 28.022(a) and (b), Education Code, are
 1-6     amended to read as follows:
 1-7           (a)  The board of trustees of each school district shall
 1-8     adopt a policy that:
 1-9                 (1)  provides for a conference between parents and
1-10     teachers;  [and]
1-11                 (2)  requires the district, at least once every 12
1-12     weeks, to give written notice to a parent of a student's
1-13     performance in each class or subject; and
1-14                 (3)  requires the district, at least once every three
1-15     weeks, to give written notice to a parent of a student's
1-16     performance in a subject included in the foundation curriculum
1-17     under Section 28.002(a)(1) if the student's performance in the
1-18     subject is consistently unsatisfactory, as determined by the
1-19     district.
1-20           (b)  The notice required under Subsections [Subsection]
1-21     (a)(2) and (a)(3) must:
1-22                 (1)  provide for the signature of a student's parent;
1-23     and
1-24                 (2)  be returned to the district.
 2-1           SECTION 2.  This Act applies beginning with the 1999-2000
 2-2     school year.
 2-3           SECTION 3.  The importance of this legislation and the
 2-4     crowded condition of the calendars in both houses create an
 2-5     emergency and an imperative public necessity that the
 2-6     constitutional rule requiring bills to be read on three several
 2-7     days in each house be suspended, and this rule is hereby suspended,
 2-8     and that this Act take effect and be in force from and after its
 2-9     passage, and it is so enacted.
