School Board Passes Resolution Against Vouchers

October 16, 2023 – The Amarillo ISD Board of Trustees passed a resolution expressing opposition to proposed school voucher initiatives currently before the Texas Legislature.

The School Board called on the Legislature to “reject any diversion of taxpayer dollars to private entities in the form of education savings accounts and similar voucher arrangements.” The resolution also asked the Legislature to provide additional resources to adequately fund public schools during this time of unprecedented inflation and numerous unfunded mandates.
