HISD’s Government Relations Department will be hosting a brown bag luncheon to discuss the school finance proposals being considered in the Texas Legislature and the potential impact on HISD on Friday, April 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center (4400 W. 18th, 77092).

“Texas is facing record budget shortfalls and the Legislature is proposing deep cuts to state school funding,” said Government Relations Director Rebecca Flores. “HISD is committed to keeping parents and the community informed about what is currently going on in Austin.” Participants are asked to bring a brown bag lunch and learn about the basics of Texas school finance and review several bills currently being discussed in Austin.
