Senator Brandon Creighton Statement on Texas School Closings

“The health and well-being is the first priority for all Texas students, which is why Governor Abbott and TEA Commissioner Morath made the hard decision to close Texas schools for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Whether you have a kindergartener, a high school senior, or are finishing up graduate work for your masters, this decision will be a defining part of your education. As a parent and a legislator, I know this is difficult.

"Throughout these difficult times, Texas educators have risen to the occasion and found innovative, creative ways to continue connecting with their students. I know this will continue, and I hope to be a resource for all 19 school districts throughout Senate District 4 to ensure the best outcome for students, educators and Texas families."
