HB 22, Which Delays A-F Accountability to 2019, Passes House on Third Reading

05.04.2017 — HB 22, Chairman Dan Huberty's bill that makes changes to the A-F school/district accountability system, was passed by the House Thursday, May 4, on third reading with 146 ayes.

An amendment by Rep. Jason Isaac would have provided that any teacher quality indicator that considers the performance of a teacher's students may not consider student performance on STAAR. The amendment was tabled.

Sixteen amendments to the bill were adopted Wednesday, May 3, during the House's second reading of the bill. HB 22 now goes to the Senate.
