Happy Holidays!

The anticipation of the holidays is creating quite a stir in the city. People are rushing to get presents purchased and wrapped while working to organize the family gathering. In all of the hustle of the holidays, remember that the new year will bring the start of the 85th Texas Legislative Session. TASSP encourages you to stay informed and current with the proposed legislation. Your voice matters to your school, your students, teachers and community. Be the voice that speaks up about how proposed legislation would affect your campus, specifically your students. Stay connected by creating an account with Texas Legislature Online. You can watch committee meetings and sessions through online streaming. There are many proposed topics that could greatly affect your school. Be the voice. Be the vision.
