The Texas Education Agency (TEA) today announced the launch of a new web video series, “HB3 in 30,” to help inform school districts and the public about how to implement the transformative measures in House Bill 3, passed during the 86th legislative session.
Each video will feature, in roughly 30 minutes, an overview and detailed explanation of a specific provision in House Bill 3, as well as information on how TEA is working to implement applicable changes to public education required by this new legislation.
“House Bill 3 is a groundbreaking and innovative piece of legislation,” said Education Commissioner Mike Morath. “This new law has been designed to support our teachers, focus on learning and student outcomes, increase funding and equity, and reduce property taxes. TEA is committed to ensuring educators and school district officials know both what changes to expect as a result of HB3 and that TEA is working hard to provide them the resources and information necessary to prepare them for the next school year.”
Videos will be released every Thursday and will be accompanied by supporting documents available for download. A full schedule of weekly release dates, a summary of HB3, frequently asked questions, and implementation guidance for school districts can be found on the TEA House Bill 3 information site.
The first video in the series, an overview of Budget Planning for Teacher Compensation, is scheduled for release on Thursday, June 26.
“HB3 In 30” was kicked off with an introductory video (tea.texas.gov/HB3/) by Commissioner Morath, expressing his gratitude for the attention given by the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Speaker of the House, and members of the legislature to public education and a summary of the successes in House Bill 3.
