Post-Legislative Conference

TASB Governmental Relations hosts two Post-Legislative Conferences in conjunction with the TASB Summer Leadership Institute (SLI) conferences in San Antonio and Ft. Worth during odd-numbered years following the Texas Legislative Session.

TASB Governmental Relations staff will review the important legislation passed during the Legislative Session, focusing on what is required of school districts.

After a brief welcome and summary remarks about the legislative session, attendees will hear briefings on all major legislation affecting public education, including:

  • School finance, taxation, and fiscal accountability
  • School choice and charters
  • Elections—board and bond
  • District governance and operations
  • Salary and benefits changes and implementation
  • Teacher Retirement System, health care, and other personnel issues
  • Instruction, textbooks, and accountability
  • Student services and special education

Post-Legislative Conferences offer trustees up to three hours of Tier 3 continuing education credit OR credit to fulfill the requirement that experienced board members must receive an update to the Texas Education Code following a legislative session.
