Senate Interim Charges Include Review of Impact of G/T Allotment Repeal
This week, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick released 116 Senate Committee charges to study in the interim before the 2021 legislative session. Among these charges is to monitor the implementation of legislation addressed by the Senate Committee on Education passed by the 86th Legislature The monitoring charge, spearheaded by Senator Jane Nelson, directs the committee to “Review the impact of the repeal of a Gifted and Talented allotment on programs in districts and charter schools; Highlight various innovative Gifted and Talented programs in districts and charter schools across the state, and make recommendations on methods to strengthen and promote Gifted and Talented programs throughout Texas” (see p. 4).
TAGT appreciates the efforts of Senator Nelson, a strong G/T advocate, and is thrilled that G/T programs and funding will continue to be highlighted as an area of focus for the Senate Committee on Education.
