Be Prepared for Harvey’s Impact In Your School District

With the devastation Hurricane Harvey has unleashed on Texas, the effects will be felt in many Texas school districts, as students are displaced from their homes and schools.

The Texas Education Agency website has posted resources districts can access to gather necessary information as the impact of Harvey unfolds.

Among those is an FAQ on dealing with disasters. The FAQ addresses issues, such as attendance waivers, homeless students, transportation, and emergency school board meetings, among other topics.

TEA also has links to other resources, including the Texas School Safety Center where you can access its Severe Weather Toolkit. The toolkit contains a section on continuity of operations designed to ensure that essential functions continue to be performed during a wide range of business disruptions. There is also a link to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which has posted up-to-date resources and information on the federal response to Harvey.

The Texas Governor has also set up a Hurricane Page with the latest information on evacuations and other resources for those hardest hit by Harvey.

There will be challenges ahead for many Texas school districts and accessing these resources will help keep you informed so that you can continue to serve your communities and students.
