HB173 by Alvarado (Relating to information reported by a public school district regarding prekindergarten classes.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would require school districts offering pre-k classes to include information in the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) on class size, student to staff ratio and the type of assessment instruments administered to pre-k students and the results of each type of assessment instrument administered.
The Texas Education Agency estimates there would be a minimal cost associated with implementing the provisions of the bill.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
