Early Childhood Provisions in HB 3

Yesterday, Texas leaders unveiled the final version of the landmark school finance bill for this legislative session, HB 3. The Texas House and Senate are expected to give final approval to the bill before the legislative session ends on Monday, May 27th.


Texans Care for Children enthusiastically supports the historic decision to provide full-day pre-k funding for eligible children in HB 3. We appreciate state leaders taking this significant step forward to ensure that more children start kindergarten ready to learn and become strong readers by third grade.

The following document summarizes the major early childhood provisions included in the final bill.
