Commissioner authorizes Missed School Day waivers for districts affected by Hurricane Harvey

AUSTIN – Commissioner of Education Mike Morath announced Tuesday that school districts – including those in Hardin and Jasper counties – and charters within Gov. Greg Abbott’s 58-county disaster declaration for Hurricane Harvey can submit Missed School Day Waivers for any scheduled instructional days missed this week due to recent adverse weather conditions.

“Hurricane Harvey hit our state as many districts prepared to begin the new school year. In some communities, the school year was already underway,” said Morath. “High winds, heavy rains and flooding have had a devastating effect on campuses throughout a large portion of Texas. Along with everyone at the Texas Education Agency, we stand ready to assist our schools in the weeks ahead.”
