We know it's been a trying week as the COVID-19 outbreak spreads in Texas and more cities and counties order residents to shelter in place. Many districts have expanded online and distance learning opportunities while schools are closed, and our team has been hard at work helping members navigate the changes.

We continue to update our FAQ about COVID-19 as new guidance emerges from TEA, the U.S. Department of Education, and state and federal officials, (keep scrolling to see what's new this week). Districts across the state are handling related issues differently, and orders from cities and counties also vary. We're in regular contact with state officials and reaching out to local districts when members let us know about problems. We strongly encourage members who have specific questions to call us at 888-879-8282 so we can help with the situation in your area. You also can submit general inquiries through our Ask-a-Lawyer portal, and we'll respond as quickly as possible.
