The Houston Independent School District is following orders from the state to take over the struggling school district.
North Forest employees had already cleared out the headquarters last week.
HISD maintenance crews are starting to fix up the North Forest buildings before summer school starts next week.
HISD Superintendent Terry Grier has said it’s going to cost about $3 million to fix safety issues at former North Forest facilities.
