2024 Legislative Session Summary


UPDATE: The 40-day veto period has now passed, and Gov. Kemp did not veto any K-12 education legislation.

 

As of May 7, 2024, all passed legislation found in the PAGE 2024 Legislative Session Summary has been signed into law.


The PAGE 2024 Legislative Session Summary covers education-related legislation approved by the General Assembly, provides an overview of the state’s K-12 education budget, and identifies notable bills that did not pass.


All legislation will become law on July 1, 2024 unless another effective date is specified within the legislation. As 2024 is the second of

Georgia’s two-year legislative biennium,

bills that did not pass this session are not

eligible to pass in 2025 and must be re-filed

to be considered in subsequent legislative sessions.


Highlights of the PAGE summary include:


  • Information about legislation that creates Georgia's third private school voucher program and changes to Georgia’s student literacy initiative. 


  • A review of Georgia's education budgets for Amended Fiscal Year 2024 and Fiscal Year 2025, including educator pay raises and funding enhancements for school safety and pupil transportation. 


  • Updates on bills that did not pass, including ones focused on libraries, school bathrooms, and education employee benefits.
