In a rare move, the Texas Education Agency has denied permission to the Fort Bend Independent School District to start classes Aug. 9.

State officials said 285 Texas school districts have been granted waivers this year and only one, Fort Bend ISD, has been turned down. The TEA cited a lack of community consensus in rejecting the district’s request to start school earlier than the state mandated week of Aug 21.
