Session Overview

Bills Enacted

Throughout each session, Frisco ISD government affairs staff tracks all proposed legislation pertaining to public education. All bills are summarized, categorized by issue, and followed as they make their way through the legislative process.

As a matter of practice, Frisco ISD does not take positions on specific bills introduced in the Legislature. The District strives to be a helpful resource for elected officials as they consider changes impacting public education.

Legislative Testimony

During the legislative session, lawmakers hold hearings to discuss the impact of proposed legislation. Between sessions, hearings are also held for committees to gather information related to their interim charges or topics they are assigned to study by chamber leadership. 

Hearings often include both invited and public testimony from stakeholders and experts. Frisco ISD participates throughout the session and the interim by providing information to legislators regarding the interim charge or likely impact of proposed bills on the district and public schools generally. Any time a representative of Frisco ISD provides oral testimony in a committee hearing, the district also submits written testimony to provide additional or supporting information to the committee members.
