Commissioner Williams issues statement about West explosion
Commissioner of Education Michael L. Williams issued the following statement following the explosion in West, Texas.
“Our sympathies go out to our friends in the West Independent School District as they wrestle with the aftermath of Wednesday’s massive explosion. I’ve spoken to district leaders and told them TEA will provide as much flexibility and support as possible as they work to reassemble their schools and community. I’ve been very impressed with the strength and resolve these local leaders have shown as they work to bring normalcy back to the lives of their children. I also appreciate all the support the Region 12 Education Service Center in Waco and surrounding districts are providing West ISD.”
