The Senate education committee wrapped up the the session’s first half Wednesday.
SB 250, which dealt with graduation cohorts, was not heard and therefore does not go forward this session. Both SB 407, which is a general education bill, and SB 498, dealing with teacher compensation, will go forward to the full House.
Next Tuesday marks the end of the first half of the session. All Senate and House bills must pass through their initial chambers to continue in the second half.
The Senate education committee will reconvene March 8, when it will begin hearing bills passed out of the House.
