          TO:  Honorable Paul Sadler, Chair, House Committee on Public
        FROM:  John Keel, Director, Legislative Budget Board
       IN RE:  HB1470  by Dunnam (Relating to enrichment curriculum
               requirements.), As Introduced

Local Government Impact
Because current law allows districts to provide instruction in the
enrichment subjects using the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills
(TEKS) as guidelines, the implications of the revised standard would
vary widely among districts.  In particular, local implications for
professional development might be extensive in some districts and
minimal in others depending upon the extent to which the TEKS are
presently addressed in classroom instruction.
