Texas classrooms can stay closed this fall without losing state funding if local health officials order it
Michael Stravato for The Texas TribuneLocal public health officials will be able to keep Texas schools closed for in-person instruction this fall without risking state education funding, a Texas Education Agency spokesperson confirmed to The Texas Tribune Wednesday. But TEA officials confirmed Wednesday they would continue to fund school districts if local health officials order them to stay closed, as long as they offer remote instruction for all students. Public health officials warn that reopening school buildings in areas with a lot of community spread will exacerbate the virus impact on those communities. El Paso and Laredo health officials were among the first to issue those mandates last week. And Tuesday, Travis County health officials ordered all public and private schools to delay on-campus instruction at least until Sept. 7.
