What Is Texas House Bill 4545?
Schools have new requirements for ensuring students are achieving learning targets. Accomplishing this task may impact staffing, master scheduling, and an increased use of tutors.
HB 4545 establishes new requirements for schools implementing accelerated instruction for students who do not pass the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR). This new statute, effective June 16th, 2021, requires accelerated instruction to be implemented for students beginning with the 2021-2022 school year
Accelerated instruction is designed to assist students in achieving satisfactory performance on STAAR or End-of-Course assessments. It provides target instruction on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)
Accelerated instruction includes delivering supplemental instruction before or after school (including Saturday if needed) or embedded in the school day. Accelerated instruction delivered in the summer will only satisfy the HB 4545 requirements if the criteria for supplemental instruction were met.
