Schooling choices up to parents as TEA evaluates Ike-damaged districts

Posted by Texas Education on September 16, 2008

For now, the classroom immediate future for thousands of schoolchildren displaced by Hurricane Ike remains uncertain. Unlike with Hurricane Katrina, the Texas Education Agency has not advised school districts to start enrolling students at shelters, mainly because it is unknown how long it will take before families can return home.

Some parents may choose to go ahead and enroll their children in local schools, but several local districts are reporting only a few inquiries or enrollments related to the Hurricane Ike evacuation.

For the full story here per the Dallas News. There is a lot more information on this story.

Press Release From SFA:

All classes at Stephen F. Austin State University are canceled for Monday, Sept. 16, including the Early Childhood Lab and Charter School. An announcement regarding Tuesday classes will be made by noon Monday.

Although the university itself fared well in the storm, the Nacogdoches community and the surrounding areas where many of our employees and non-resident students live were impacted strongly by the storm. An assessment of the local conditions led to the decision to postpone re-opening campus.

Essential personnel and faculty and staff critical to the hurricane response should report to campus as scheduled Monday.

Although classes have been canceled, food service will continue in the cafeterias according to the regular schedule. Students, faculty, staff and members of the general public are welcome to dine in either cafeteria on a cash basis.

Faculty and staff members, along with their families, are welcome to shelter at the Norton HPE Complex. To check-in at the shelter, show an SFA employee ID at the south door to the complex closest to the Early Childhood Lab building.
