Kick-off meeting to be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19, in the Humble ISD Board Room
Humble ISD invites all community members to make a difference in public education by participating in the District Legislative Committee. This committee will focus on state issues and proposed legislation affecting Humble ISD students. Humble ISD convenes the District Legislative Committee during school years in which the Texas Legislature meets. A kick-off meeting for the 2017 Legislative Committee will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19, in the Humble ISD Board Room, at 20200 Eastway Village Drive. Everyone is encouraged to attend.
Special guest speakers for the evening will be State Representative Dan Huberty and Executive Director of the Fast Growth School Coalition Dr. Guy Sconzo.
Rep. Huberty has served on the Texas House Public Education Committee and was named “Rookie of the Year” by Texas Monthly Magazine at the conclusion of the 82nd Legislative Session. Prior to the election that sent him to the Texas Capitol Building in 2011, Rep. Huberty served on the Humble ISD Board of Trustees for five years.
Dr. Sconzo was a superintendent of Humble ISD for 15 years. He retired from the district in 2016 and now serves as Executive Director for the Fast Growth School Coalition. The Coalition provides a collective voice that educates and advocates for investment in the state's fastest growing school districts to deliver the high-quality education Texas students and taxpayers deserve.
The 85th Texas Legislative Session will be held Jan. 10 through May 29, 2017. The District Legislative Committee will work with the Humble ISD School Board’s Legislative Committee, which includes Nancy Morrison as chair, Board President Keith Lapeze and Board Vice President Angela Conrad as Board Committee members.
