After displaced students have enrolled in their new schools, LEAs and SEAs continue to have a responsibility to track them and report the data as a component of communicating about the impact of the crisis. This ongoing effort is necessary because the enrollment status of displaced students is subject to great change. A student who unexpectedly moves into temporary housing is likely to enroll and withdraw from several schools before settling into a more permanent living situation. Ongoing tracking of these students is vital to serving the child's education needs and meeting state and federal reporting requirements.
Hurricane information websiteThe Texas Education Agency created a website as a hurricane response resource for school administrators, teachers, and parents. This website, contained information about data collection and reporting procedures, accountability, assessment, curriculum, finance, and other relevant laws and regulations. Data about displaced student enrollments in Texas public schools were also included.
