Hurricane Harvey Resources
Our thoughts and prayers are with all TASA members, their families and school district staff, as well as the students and communities affected by the damage and flooding resulting from Hurricane Harvey. We continue to be inspired by the tremendous leadership many of our members have shown in this difficult time. As always, we at TASA are here to support you. As a start, we have compiled a list of resources that may be useful to you — as well as to colleagues across the state who want to help. See the list.
