Toledo Public Schools students, others, raise money for Houston school district

All nine HISD meal sites open for Houston community

Richard Carranza, Houston Independent School District superintendent, walks through a classroom inside the flood-damaged A.G. Hilliard Elementary School, during a tour of the school in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Harvey, on Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017, in Houston.

Perrysburg schools and Penta Career Center are joining in the effort, called "Hugs for Houston". He says that prepared the district to always have a system in place to receive others in need.

One effect is an extension of the "summer slide", a term sociologists use to refer to the knowledge loss kids experience over the summer as they forget some of what they learned in the prior school year.

"We are the fastest-growing district per capita and we are seeing well over 500 students [added] per year over the last three years", he said.

Houston Independent School District officials have offered students three free meals per day as the area continues to recover from Hurricane Harvey, KRTK reported.

Some 230,000 students in Houston were supposed to go back to school this week, but face delays due to Hurricane Harvey.

Alphabet. Inc's Nest Launches a cheapest thermostat
Former Nest CEO Tony Fadell left the company previous year and Ars Technica detailed other troubles at the time in the company. Nest Labs said Wednesday that it will sell a cheaper Internet-connected thermostat in a bid to get more customers.

"Our position is that school schedules should be a matter of local control as those closest to the communities are best equipped to make decisions that meet their schools' unique needs", said spokesman Troy Flint.

Outside the Conestoga Valley High School a sign reads: "September trait: Responsibility" and right now, Dr. Dave Zuilkoski, the superintendent, says it's the school district's responsibility to care for those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas. To help families, the HISD also announced it will be relaxing its uniform policy until January, a nod to those that lost homes because of flooding. Others said some teachers quit before the school year ended, struggled throughout the year or were unable to pass tests needed for certification. He said some parents and faculty have asked why elementary and middle students have to accommodate the interests of high schoolers.

California should look to emulate Florida's newly enacted open enrollment plan, which allows parents to enroll their kids in any school in the state that has not reached capacity. "I believe our district can innovatively provide an option that is not simply a one-size-fits-all approach and is actually more responsive to what we've heard on the ground", he said in January before becoming president.

A school district spokeswoman told STN that the district is still in the process of determining damage to the fleet of school buses.

HISD has postponed the start of the new school year until Tuesday, but it may now be later than that.
