Harvey forced school districts all across the Houston area to delay the start of classes. But, things are slowly getting back to where they should be.
Schools in HISD open up shop today, but not all of them. There are 81 that will either open on the 18th or the 25th. Tracy Clemons with HISD says the district is asking parents to be open minded.
“Flexibility is going to be the name of the game this school year. We are urging parents and staff to be patient and flexible,” Clemons said.
The Fort Bend ISD opens up tomorrow. Superintendent Charles Dupre told KTRH the length of the school year, for right now, is up in the air.
“Right now the length of the school year is uncertain. We are hoping to maintain the current adopted school schedule,” Dupre explained.
Other districts came back last week. Judy Rimato with Klein ISD says some schools were too damaged to keep using. And she also says they are accepting students from districts that suffered more damage than they did.
“If students have been displaced then they can enroll in Klein schools. We don’t have a count as of yet, but we are working on gathering that information,” Rimato stated.
Other school districts opening today include Katy and Spring Branch ISD’s.
