Will school districts, parents get more guidance today?


Parents are wondering what the next school year will look like. So are teachers. Some of the answers might come today.

The Texas Education Agency is supposed to give districts and parents some more guidance about the school year today. What we do know is that Governor Greg Abbott wants kids in classrooms.

"My goal is to see students back in classrooms in seats, interacting personally with teachers and other students," Abbott told a TV station in Lubbock last week.

But Zeph Capo with the Houston Federation of teachers aays there's a lot they still don't know.

"Particularly if districts are going to be able to make their own decisions to deliver instruction in the way that best meets the needs of their constituents," Capo explained.

Ultimately, it probably will wind up varying from school district to school district. Capo says 50-70% of his teachers are concerned that schools are not ready to return from the March shutdown.
