​​CY-FAIR - As a part of a Sam Houston State University (SHSU) initiative to establish a public, open-enrollment school district in the Greater Houston area, officials will open five charter schools within Cy-Fair ISD boundaries this fall.

SHSU will open locations at five existing childcare facilities for students in kindergarten through second grade in the first year. Plans include phasing in another grade level each year up to sixth grade, according to a release from the university.

The charter schools will be opened at the following locations:
•    Kids R Kids, 7410 Fry Rd., Cypress
•    Foundations Academy, 17721 Lakecrest View Dr., Cypress
•    Foundations Academy, 11825 Fallbrook Dr., Houston
•    Kids R Kids, 10740 Barker Cypress Rd., Cypress
•    Kids R Kids, 19814 Keith Harrow Blvd., Katy

The charter schools will not be associated with the early childhood programs already in place at these facilities, officials said. All charter school hires will be employed by SHSU, and all teachers will be certified.

The schools will also give students in SHSU’s education program an opportunity to get classroom experience.
