Texas classrooms can stay closed without losing state funding
SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) - Texas Education Agency officials say that schools will be able to close for in-person classes this fall without losing state funding.
On Wednesday, TEA officials confirmed they would continue to fund districts if local health officials order them to stay closed, but only if they offer remote instruction to students.
Last week, the TEA released an order requiring schools to open their buildings to in-person classes five days a week for all students who want it. The TEA is expected to roll out revised guidance on reopening schools in the upcoming days.
