Students sent elsewhere while renovations are finished.

On the day they were due back in new classrooms, students from Austin Middle School in Galveston, Texas, toured museums, watched a movie and bowled with school administrators. Austin Middle School teachers, on the other hand, spent Monday frantically piecing together classrooms in the building the district has spent $8.9 million renovating.

Administrators had said Austin would be ready for students by Monday, but some classrooms were still without desks and cabinets.
