Texas' Commissioner of Education Mike Morath Grants Waivers for Houston Area Schools Hit by Flooding

"Gov. Abbott moved swiftly to declare a state of disaster and bring needed assistance to these counties," said Commissioner Morath. "I commend school system leaders for their swift response to ensure the safety of students, teachers and campus staff."

As a result of the two missed instructional day waivers, school systems in disaster counties that have missed one or two days this week due to flooding will not have to make up those days on the remaining school calendar.

Greater Houston area counties in Gov. Abbott’s state of disaster declaration include Austin, Fort Bend, Colorado, Grimes, Harris, Montgomery, Waller and Wharton.
