Ursula Parks, Director, Legislative Budget Board
HB2012 by Villarreal (Relating to collection, distribution, and use of information relating to salaries and working conditions of public school classroom teachers.), As Introduced
The bill would require the Texas Education Agency to collect classroom teacher salary data from school districts through the Public Education Information Management System and provide this information on the agency's website that indicates, by school district, the average salaries of classroom teachers by subject and grade level.
The bill would require the Commissioner of Education to develop an online survey to be administered at least biennially to superintendents, principals, supervisors, classroom teachers, counselors, and other appropriate full-time professional employees related to teaching and working conditions. The bill would require the Commissioner of Education to contract with a third-party survey administrator to collect responses and requires the Commissioner of Education to provide the survey results to school districts and campuses.
This analysis assumes that any costs related to implementing the provisions of the bill could be absorbed within existing resources.
