Subject: House Bill 3 (HB 3) Implementation: HB 3 in 30 Video Series Update 
Category: Commissioner
Next Steps:  Share with appropriate staff 


We are proud to announce that, as of last week, TEA staff have created twenty (20) HB 3 in 30 videos and associated support documents.  We have five (5) more to go. 

The intent behind this communication is two-fold.

First, this is just a reminder about the video series.  We hear from district leaders frequently around the state with questions about HB 3, including many questions about how best to approach implementation of various pieces of the bill.  We have done our best to address this in the video series.  The video on Reading Practices is of particular importance in planning for the reading academies.  Also, the latest HB 3 in 30 video is on the Additional Days School Year initiative, a lesser well known piece of HB 3.  You can find it and all the other videos at  We encourage you to watch them at your convenience.

Second, we have some slight changes to the schedule for the remaining five videos.  Please see below our schedule for upcoming videos this fall: 

Tax Rate Changes Part II – Coming Soon
New Teacher Mentoring – Coming Soon
Transportation Funding – November 7, 2019
FAFSA – November 14, 2019
K-2 Diagnostic Tools – November 21, 2019

We hope you have enjoyed our videos and have found the information useful to implementation of House Bill 3. We also welcome any additional feedback to improve our communication. For any additional questions, please email
