We work with our local elected officials and state legislators

The Texas School Coalition represents the voice of all Chapter 41 districts at the state and local levels, making sure your elected officials, decision makers and the media are aware of the important issues affecting Chapter 41 students, families and teachers.

Our long-term legislative goals include:

  1. Advance a strong commitment from state leaders to public schools that fulfilles constitutional requirements and their obligation to the children of Texas.
  2. Create a funding system for public schools that affords suitable provision of resources, capacity for growth, and meaningful discretion for local districts.
  3. Provide and protect the right of local boards to have meaningful discretion in their decisions and actions, including the retention of local funds that meet the needs of each district.
  4. Support an open, transparent legislative process in which school leaders can be engaged in the discussion and formulation of future policy decisions.
