The Taylor ISD community can prepare in depth about how school starts this month.
On July 28, the school district released its start-of-school plan entitled “Educating Our Students While Navigating COVID-19.” The plan is available in both English and Spanish on the Taylor ISD website.
As stated in the plan, the expectation that the 2020-21 school year will resume safely and responsibly this fall is accompanied by numerous opinions and theories about how to do so. Reopening school in August will be complex due to many unknown and uncertain variables surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
School is scheduled to restart for students on Aug. 20. The first four weeks of school will be virtual. A determination will be made during the first four weeks if an extension of virtual learning is needed. The district says help of staff and parents will be needed to make it happen.
The plan includes guidelines for health and safety, campus visitor, classrooms, child nutrition, extracurricular activities, special education, remote learning and more.
Taylor ISD will provide the opportunity for parents to indicate whether they want their children to return to school remotely or to the classrooms.
