Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath has provided verbal approval of a waiver request for Summer Creek High School to operate on a pilot schedule for the 2018-2019 school year. Commissioner Morath spoke with Humble ISD Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Fagen on July 26 and said that TEA will follow-up with formal written approval.
“Necessity is the mother of invention, and Hurricane Harvey pushed us out of normal comfort zones,” Dr. Fagen said. “Summer Creek High School implemented a non-traditional schedule last year because of Harvey. This year, they are implementing it by choice. I want to thank Commissioner Morath for being open to flexibility. I also want to thank State Representative Dan Huberty for his support of educators working in ways that they believe best serve their students. This pilot schedule was strongly supported by the Summer Creek community.”
