Texas PTA Legislative Priorities
88th Legislative Session

Texas PTA is proud to continue building upon our long-standing legacy of advocating to make every child’s potential a reality within the following pillars: Supporting Student Success, Health and Safety, Meaningful Assessment and Accountability, and Strengthening Public Schools.


Public School Funding System
Pursue legislation that increases the basic allotment and funds public education based on enrollment versus attendance.

Vouchers
Oppose legislation that authorizes state funds to be used to pay for private school tuition and related costs.

Teacher and Staff Shortage and Retention
Pursue legislation that addresses teacher and staff shortages and improves retention.

Student Mental Health
Pursue mental health legislation, including systems to identify students in need of intervention, and programs and services designed to help keep students mentally strong and prepared to cope with personal challenges.

A-F Accountability System
Pursue legislation impacting the state’s A-F system. Advocate for an accountability system that more broadly reviews school performance and includes a family engagement component.

In addition to our lead initiatives, Texas PTA will support legislation around the following issues. Each of these priorities is critically important to children in Texas.
