HISD SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION
On Tuesday, November 7th, the Houston Independent School District will elect six new school board members for its nine-person board. With that many seats in play, this election could dramatically affect the development of trauma-informed curriculum focused around Social Emotional Learning within Houston’s classrooms.
