HOUSTON (AP) - Students at 12 campuses in Houston’s school district will have longer school days to make up for instructional time they have lost due to Harvey.

The district’s board of trustees on Thursday voted to extend school days for 12 campuses that still remain closed.

Five schools will have an additional 25 minutes of instructional time added while seven others will have 55 minutes added. These campuses are set to open on Monday and on Sept. 25.

The expanded school days will apply only for the first half of the school year. These campuses will return to normal schedules in the spring.

The district’s other campuses started classes for the new school year this week after a two week delay due to Harvey.
