Statement of Commissioner Michael Williams
regarding today's incident at Spring High School
AUSTIN - Commissioner of Education Michael Williams issued the following statement regarding today's incident at Spring High School:
"Our schools should always be thought of as a place of learning, encouragement and, above all, one where our students can feel safe. However, tragedies such as the one today are unfortunate reminders of disruptive external factors - beyond education - that our students and teachers can encounter. I share the commitment of educators in assuring every Texas school is the safest it can be. My thoughts and prayers, along with those of everyone at the Texas Education Agency, are with all students, parents, teachers and administrators at Spring ISD."
