The Texas Education Agency ordered the North Forest Independent School District to close and merge with Houston ISD.
This decision will be effective July 1, 2013.
“We at North Forest ISD are disappointed by the TEA’s decision to merge North Forest with HISD,” said North Forest ISD Superintendent Edna Forté. ”We truly believe partnering with the charter schools that make up PHILO is the best option for the children of North Forest, we will appeal this decision to the State Office of Administrative Hearings. Regardless of the outcome, the faculty and staff will continue to move forward with the transformative work we are doing at North Forest ISD to complete a successful year.”
