In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, it was widely expected that the Texas Department of Education would begin rolling out new testing, which would help prepare students for the upcoming academic year.
But there was a problem: The state doesn’t have the funding to do anything.
According to the Texas Education Agency, the state will need to raise more than $8.8 billion to provide funding for the next five years, but funding for education has been stretched to the limit as a result of a decade-long financial crisis.
As a result, a number of districts in Texas have decided to stop testing students for a variety of reasons.
But not all of the districts that are cutting back on tests have a problem with testing.
Some districts in Dallas, Austin, Houston, and Dallas-Fort Worth are considering testing their students, but they have chosen not to do so because of concerns about the lack of funding.
As the Austin American-Statesman reported, some districts are planning to do some tests, but only for certain students or in certain areas.
The school districts in these areas have also found that it costs more to test students.
The school districts that have opted to test their students are:The Dallas Morning News reported that in Dallas- Fort Worth, a few districts are testing for the new science-related skills.
In Dallas- Midland, schools have begun testing students with specific skills such as math and science.
In the Dallas- Katy district, teachers have begun using computer-based tests to measure their students’ math and reading skills.
The district in Houston, which has the highest percentage of students in the lowest-income category, has decided to test for a new science and math skill called STEM.
The Dallas- Houston Independent School District is testing for a “science and math” skill called “Geometry and the Mathematics of Numbers.”
But the district in the Houston- Midway district has decided not to test the new skill, according to the AP.
Other districts are opting to stop teaching science to students or testing for certain skills.
In Houston, the Houston Independent Schools District is using a test called the STEM test to help teachers and students improve their math skills.
But the AP noted that the test, which was developed by the University of Houston, costs $7,000 per student.
The AP reported that the Houston district was testing for math, science, English, and other topics in addition to the STEM skill.
But it also reported that many of the students are also taking the SAT, which is more expensive to administer and takes longer to complete.
Houston Independent School Board member, Mike McElwee, told the AP that the district is planning to take the SAT in 2019, but that the new tests will take up a lot of school time.
“We’re planning to spend an extra $7 million a year to teach math to students and science to teachers,” he said.
It is unknown what other districts are doing, but the AP reports that some districts in some states are considering cutting back, including Kansas, where the district has already eliminated tests for some students.
Teachers and students have been concerned about testing since the storm hit Texas.
Many teachers and principals are worried about the cost of testing.
Teachers in Texas, who have also faced financial difficulties since Harvey hit, are also concerned about the testing, but many are also frustrated.
A report from the Texas Public Policy Foundation noted that some teachers and school administrators have even stopped teaching science classes.
“It’s the most stressful thing I’ve ever done in my life,” said Dr. Jessica DeGuzman, the district’s principal.
“The teachers in my school are saying, ‘We don’t need to do this anymore.
I’m out of my job.'”
