HB 795 What high schools are left?

Filed under: Homeschooling — texased @ 9:48 am

I’m not going to quibble over this one but I still have to wonder why it couldn’t have been written as “graduated from a high school in this state?” Are there any high schools in Texas that wouldn’t be covered by the stated definition?

80(R) HB 795 – Introduced version – Bill Text:

�������Sec.�54.220.��EXEMPTION FOR RESIDENT LOWER-DIVISION STUDENTS AT GENERAL ACADEMIC TEACHING INSTITUTIONS FOR MAINTAINING HIGH ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE. �(a) In this section, “general academic teaching institution”�has the meaning assigned by Section 61.003.
�������(b)��An entering freshman student enrolled in a general academic teaching institution is entitled to a refund of the tuition and required fees paid by the student under this chapter for the first semester or term for which the student enrolls at that institution if the student:
�������������(1)��graduated from a private high school, including a home school, or a public high school in this state; �������������(2)��is classified as a Texas resident under Subchapter B; and
�������������(3)��for all courses attempted that initial semester or term earns a grade point average of at least 3.0 on a four-point scale or the equivalent.
