This Tuesday is our 2017 Austin Fly-in! We will be co-hosting an evening reception with the City of Dallas at the historic Driskill hotel from 5:30 – 7:30 PM.
This week at the Capitol, Virginia Schaefer, Senior Vice President of Public Policy & Advocacy for the DRC, met with Senate staff to discuss the DRC’s Pro-Growth Legislative Accountability Index process. This is our second session to partner with the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce on the Index.
The DRC also submitted written testimony to the State Board of Educator Certification (SBEC) advocating for the addition of an optional Early Childhood – 3rd grade (EC-3) educator certification, which would allow teachers to specialize in instruction for young children. This supports both the DRC and Early Matters Dallas education advocacy priorities for advancing teacher quality and effectiveness and high-quality early childhood education.
Learn more about the DRC’s legislative agenda and priorities for the 85th Texas Legislature.
