Summary of Texas Parent “Trigger” Bill
The Parent Trigger Bill allows the parents of children who are assigned to one particular public school to petition for a change in management of their school. If the parents of a majority of the children assigned to that school sign the petition, the bill requires that the school district to enact their request.
The petition asks for the management of the school to be given to a private management company, i.e. a charter school. This charter school is called a “Campus Charter School” because it will be operated using the same campus and the same “attendance zone” as the original public school. The charter school management company would be named in the petition.
