Houston Independent School District Board Vice President, Diana Davila, discusses the Texas Education Agency's warning to HISD that the district faces the prospect of having some of its low-performing schools closed unless they make significant academic progress.

Eleven schools in HISD received an "improvement required" rating.

Davila maintains HISD has made some progress as 90 percent of the District's schools earned a "met standard" rating for the 2016-2017 school year.

But she admits there's still much work to do to help chronically low-performing schools.
