The House Education Committee will hold a public hearing on HB 1497 on Tuesday, January 16 at 1:30 p.m. in LOB 207. 

The bill would change the qualifications for a school to become a “focus” or “priority” school. It would add schools that have the largest career and college readiness indicator gaps for 2 consecutive years to the list of “focus schools.” Under the bill, if these schools remain on the list for 2 consecutive years, they would be qualified as a “priority school.” The bill would also make several changes to the qualifications of a “priority school.”
