HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- After years of discussions, the Texas Education Agency has officially said they will be taking over the Houston Independent School District.
TEA commissioner Mike Morath says the changes won't happen overnight, but applications are already being accepted for a nine-person board of members.
Those members will be appointed by Morath and will have the same authority as the school board.
