Legislative Update

Election Day is November 6th, with early voting starting October 22nd and running through November 2nd. Please take a moment to vote! You can find more information at www.HarrisVotes.com.


The Texas Legislature begins its biennial session on January 8, 2019. This will be an important year for SBISD, as school finance will be at the forefront. SBISD will send about $88 million in recapture payments to the state this year-a very heavy burden on our schools’ budget. So, please expect calls to action and try to participate whenever possible.


For the most up-to-date information and calls to action, go to Spring Branch Speaks through Facebook or at www.springbranchspeaks.com.
