We convene, educate and advocate to strengthen the quality and availability of afterschool and summer programs for Texas kids.
2017 Legislative Session Success
In 2017, TXPOST developed key allies in the community to support and champion afterschool and summer programs. TXPOST worked with Senator Hughes and Representative Ashby to pass Senate Bill 1404, which was signed into law by Governor Abbott on June 15, 2017. This bill is designed to increase data collection of voluntary afterschool and summer programs in school districts across the state. Data on participation and activities offered afterschool will be collected. Stay tuned for additional information on the implementation of this bill and its influence on the field of out of school time in the Lone Star State.
