Ask HISD: How will the government shutdown affect HISD?

2013 October 3

According to Sharon Eaves, the general manager of HISD’s Budgeting and Financial Planning, the impact on the district should not be that significant.

“The reimbursements from the Texas Education Agency for our federal entitlement grants might be delayed if payments are delayed to them,” said Eaves. “But any payments we receive directly from the federal government should continue, since they have prior authorization. Still, they could be delayed somewhat.”

Eaves also noted that since the district’s Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps programs would likely be considered part of the military, its funding would not be affected.
