House Bill 5

The Path toward Post-Secondary Preparation

House Bill 5 (HB5) has impacted several areas of the Texas Education Code (TEC). The new law, passed by the 83rd Regular Session of the Legislature, has signaled changes in coursework, graduation requirements, assessment, and accountability. Effective June 2013, HB5 will have a significant effect on Local Education Agencies (LEAs) over coming years. In an effort to provide guidance and support for the community and school districts in the El Paso area, ESC-Region 19 has gathered pertinent resources to aid in this transition.

The new law will have a significant impact on 4 key instructional areas:
