AUSTIN (ValleyCentral) — On Thursday evening, Gov. Greg Abbott signed Senate Bill 15, allowing school districts to offer virtual learning.
Some school districts in the Rio Grande Valley such as Weslaco ISD and Mercedes ISD have already implemented a virtual academy.
The bill requires that a maximum of 10% of students can be enrolled online, ValleyCentral previously reported. School districts can move virtual students back on campus if they do not meet certain grade requirements.
Earlier this week Abbott designated DHR Health as a Level 1 Trauma center and signed Senate Bill 827, which caps co-pay prices for insulin prescriptions.
