Houston -

The Houston Independent School District is inviting students from the Children First Academy, a charter school closed this week by the Texas Education Agency, to enroll in HISD.

The Children First Academy, located at 7308 East Little York, was ordered to close this week because the school had not conducted criminal background checks on all of its employees, which is required by law.

The charter school has campuses in Houston and one in Dallas.

Both will remain closed until the issue is resolved.

According to HISD, parents interested in enrolling their children in HISD should first visit their neighborhood school.

If they have questions about other HISD campus options, call the School Choice Office at 713-556-6734.
