The North Forest Independent School District says they have lost their final appeal. Although the official ruling is not in yet, the Texas Supreme Court has communicated that it is denying NFISD’s request for an emergency hearing on its state court lawsuit. Attorney Chris Tritico says this is the end of North Forest ISD.
“North Forest is out of legal options to block the merger, and it will occur on Monday morning,” he said.
The Texas Education Agency was displeased with the performance of schools within the North Forest ISD and ordered the district to close. North Forest fought every possible angle in the court but were turned down.
