Educational Update Based on Governor Abbott’s April 17th Orders
Based on the April 17th executive order of Governor Abbott, the Bangs, Blanket, Brookesmith, Brownwood, Coleman, Early, May, Panther Creek, Santa Anna, and Zephyr ISDs will only be providing off-campus instruction for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. While the Governor’s order today closes buildings for students, schools are still required by the state to provide services.
Districts will maintain their off-campus instructional programs for students and their meal programs, according to each district’s plan. Personnel should maintain communication with their supervisors to coordinate work to maintain core district operations. Staff who have been providing their services remotely should continue to do so in coordination with their supervisors.
Graduation plans, grading regulations and progress reporting, summer activities, 2020-2021 registration processes, student personal belonging pick-up, and other logistical details will vary by district. Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath is expected to provide districts more directions next week. Please follow your district’s website and email communications.
Thank you for your patience, support, and cooperation.
