Ratings for the Meeting on April 9

On Thursday, April 9, the Houston ISD Board of Education held its monthly pubic business meeting. Although most of the conversation focused on the district’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, trustees were able to approve annual funding for the Teach Forward Houston program, a partnership with the University of Houston that has shown very high college retention rates among participants and is on track to provide a small but viable teacher pipeline for HISD. Despite the current social-distancing mandates, trustees will continue to meet virtually over the next few weeks to finalize emergency priorities and discuss the budget for next year, which must be approved by the end of June.
