The Nederland Independent School District returned to class Thursday with campuses across the city welcoming back students for the 2021-22 academic year.

Road construction throughout the city caused some extended arrival times, but no large-scale problems were reported.

The NISD educates approximately 5,100 students between pre-kindergarten and 12th grade. There are approximately 1,550 high school students.

The district employs 650 people with 400 serving as teachers.
