Attorney General Paxton sues San Antonio I.S.D.

The school district has implemented an employee vaccine mandate

AUSTIN, Texas – Attorney General Paxton filed a lawsuit against the San Antonio Independent School District and Superintendent Pedro Martinez. San Antonio I.S.D. has mandated that all district employees must be vaccinated against Covid-19. This mandate violates Executive Order GA-39. Governor Greg Abbott implemented Executive Order GA-39 to prohibit governmental entities, such as school districts, from requiring individuals to be vaccinated against Covid-19, regardless of whether the vaccine is fully approved or authorized for emergency use only.

“The decision to openly violate state law and devote district resources to defending Superintendent Martinez’s unlawful actions is irresponsible,” Attorney General Paxton said. “But if school districts decide to use their limited funding to try to get away with breaking the law, my office will oppose them and uphold the rule of law in Texas.”
