Governor Greg Abbott is giving Texas school districts more say in the matter of when to open their campuses to in-person teaching this fall. Abbott made the announcement on Tuesday in an interview with a Houston TV station. State public health guidelines issued last week gave school districts up to three-weeks to conduct virtual instruction while putting their safety protocols in place. If they didn't start classroom teaching after that, they would lose state funding. The governor now says that time will be extended.
