    MLCPA is gaining constant buzz in and around the City of Houston, and HISD is exploring potential partnerships with several foundations, area businesses, and community leaders. Through these partnerships, we are hoping to be able to provide our incoming students with school uniforms, consisting of a blazer, two neckties, two pair of khaki pants, and two white shirts.
