Government Relations

The Texas Legislature makes decisions on issues that affect public education, including funding, curriculum, graduation requirements, standardized testing, accountability, and much more. Tyler ISD hopes that you will stay informed about proposed legislation that will affect your children, as well as all children attending public school in Texas. Our legislators must hear your opinions and concerns as they make these critical decisions. Please take the time to contact them personally on any issues affecting public education or Tyler ISD specifically. If you have questions about pending legislation, school funding, or any other topics, you are welcome to contact Tyler ISD by email or by calling the main number at 903.262.1000. Someone will be happy to assist you.
