North Forest ISD officially closes, will merge with Houston ISD

NFISD lost its final appeal last week


HOUSTON – North Forest Independent School District has now closed its doors and will merge with the Houston Independent School District.

The district was ordered closed today after it lost its final appeal to stay open last week. The Texas Education Agency made the order in February and the school district has been challenging it ever since.

HISD says it will soon schedule a North Forest community meeting to discuss the changes students will face.
