North Forest ISD schools improve, but still struggling
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- After more than a year, North Forest ISD is ready to take back control of their schools, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Elected trustees were kicked out after the district posted a nearly $12 million budget deficit, received academically unacceptable rankings and our 13 Undercover unit exposed serious mismanagement in their special education department.
Under state law, the TEA-appointed board of managers can only stay for two years. That deadline comes up in October.
Since the takeover, expenses have been cut by merging schools and cutting staff, while academics have improved.
