Abbott signed Senate Bill 15 on September 9. Until now school districts across the state had to use federal funds or individual district savings to pay for virtual learning options.

Many districts and open-enrollment charter schools will be eligible to receive the funding. The law allows school districts to implement virtual programs without reducing the funding received from the state.
