CONGRATULATIONS II

Congratulations to Mr. Frank Rivera for being elected the National Speech & Debate Association Heart of Texas District Chairman!  This is a prestigious position, and Mr. Rivera was elected by other speech coaches in our district.  He will begin serving August 1, 2017 for a two year term.  We’d like to let Mr. Rivera know how proud we are to have such an incredible leader, teacher & speech coach here at CSA!

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Senate Bill 1660 (the one most favorable to CSA with the grandfather provision, acknowledgement of 4 hours as a complete day eligible for full funding) was reported out of the Senate Committee on Education on May 3rd.  Next it must be voted on by the Senate, move to the House Committee on Education, then voted on by The House and signed by the Governor before it becomes law.

House Bill 2442 (the one that will require TEA to make good on the recorded promise that we will be fully funded for 2017-18 until the full protection of the bill goes into effect for the 2018-19 school year) passed the House and is moving to the Senate on May 15th.
