HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — It’s the first day of school for three Houston-area school districts Monday, and ABC13 was at an early learning center for preschoolers to get a look inside the classrooms
The way the students’ classrooms or pods are designed at the Maria Martinez Early Learning Center is not what most adults experienced as children today.
The Early Learning Center has various themed pods. Each student spends approximately three weeks in each pod before moving to a different topic pod.
“To be honest, policymakers, school districts and school systems have long failed to recognize the importance we are now discovering. We wonder why our 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders have problems and are in many cases, not all, but in many cases you remember their experiences as a 3 or 4 year old”, said Alief ISD Superintendent HD Chambers.
Alief ISD, New Caney ISD and Hull-Daisetta ISD all start the new school year on Monday.
As of June 2022, there were 41,000 students enrolled at Alief, 16,254 at New Caney and 460 at Hull-Daisetta.
As we look ahead to this new school year after the recent school shootings, many parents think about the safety of their children when they return.
Harris County District 4 Police Officer Mark Herman, along with six school district police chiefs, plan to hold a press conference Monday morning to discuss student safety and their plans in the event of an active gunman situation on campus.
The press conference is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m
