E3 Presents HB5 Data from Class of 2018 and Discusses HB3 at the Capitol

On February 25, 2020, we presented a data-driven, decision-making event (E3-3D) on HB5 and HB3 at the Capitol for the Texas Legislative Staff. We shared new high school and postsecondary data from the Central Texas Class of 2018 that was fully under HB5 (the Foundation High School Program passed in 2013 during the 83rd Legislative Session). Our staff explored graduation rates, completion, and college and career entry for these students and discussed HB3, the College, Career and Military Readiness bill.
