The wake of Hurricane Harvey has been devastating to Texans in the Gulf Coast Region over the last week, and we continue to monitor the full effects of this storm.
As you know, Houston, Corpus Christi, Beaumont, Port Arthur, and the surrounding areas are home to a large number of public charter schools serving thousands of students. We understand that students and families have been displaced while many campuses are not currently in operation. We have received offers from across the country to help students and schools, and we continue to gather this information and will provide you with updates as they become available.
On behalf of the Texas Charter Schools Association, I want to assure you that we are here and our thoughts and prayers are with all those impacted by the disaster.
We have compiled some information on our webpage, Hurricane Harvey Resources, and will continue to update this with new information as it becomes available.
Additionally, we have learned of a volunteer effort led by teachers in the Gulf Coast Region. Please click here to learn more.
Please contact us by email or at 512-584-8272 with your questions or concerns, we’re ready to help.
