The health and safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. As concerns over the spread of COVID-19 grow across the country, please know that we share your concerns. In response to the developing and rapidly-changing situation and in consideration of maximizing ways to further prevent the risk of exposure to COVID-19, Texas Empowerment Academy will be closed indefinitely. We will continue to monitor the situation but in general will follow Austin ISD’s schedule. Please continue to practice safe and healthy measures at home to keep you and your children healthy during this time. Thank you for the continued care and concern you’ve shown our students and staff as we cope with an evolving health situation.
