Statement from Senator Miles on Houston ISD TEA Sanctions
“I am happy to see progress at Houston Independent School District and that the district has avoided possible sanctions by the Texas Education Agency. I am ecstatic that three of the schools requiring improvement in Senate District 13 — Worthing, Mading and Woodson PK-5 — have turned around student performance and now meet TEA standards. Those students, teachers, parents and principals are to be commended for their hard work to reach this achievement.
“The fight for our kids does not end here. While accountability standards have been waived for some schools in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, HISD could still face sanctions without further improvement. As the next legislative session approaches, I am prepared to roll up my sleeves and keep up the effort to help HISD succeed. I promise to do everything in my power to achieve a brighter future for Houston students.”
Keep the Faith, Keep the Fight!
