HISD schools to start classes on rolling schedule

Houston ISD schools will head back to class on a rolling schedule.

HOUSTON - Houston ISD schools will head back to class on a rolling schedule as campuses are deemed safe and ready for students and staff, Superintendent Richard Carranza said Thursday. 

Carranza said 202 schools will start Monday, Sept. 11. Another 73 schools are still being evaluated. 

Rolling starts are planned for the district's 215,000 students on Sept. 11, 18 and 25 as campuses are cleared for occupancy.

Carranza said all of the district's facilities were impacted in some way by the flooding from Harvey.

"We will not compromise the safety of our staff or students," he said.

The superintendent said students from the following nine campuses will be relocated due to damage:

Askew ES
Braeburn ES
Burbank MS
Hilliard ES
Kolter ES
Liberty HS
Mitchell ES
Robinson ES
Scarborough ES

Those schools will start on Sept. 25. For details on where each school will be relocated, click here.
