Statement from ATPE Executive Director Shannon Holmes on an adjustment in operational minutes requirements for certain attendance reporting periods during the 2021-2022 academic school year:

“We are pleased Gov. Abbott and TEA have ultimately decided to make this funding available to school districts. ATPE has been advocating for this type of flexibility and consideration ever since it became apparent in August that this school year would again be negatively affected by COVID-19 absences. This is just one example of support Texas educators need as they finish out another unimaginably difficult school year.”
