Local Schools continue planning for next year

News Staff's picture

While school officials are still sifting through the aftermath of 2020, they are also trying to plan for every contingency looking toward the next school year, and as the state continues to urge districts to rethink school calendars, superintendents and trustees have discussed several options but are not yet sold on year-round-school.

Since closing campuses under executive orders in mid-March, school officials have been forced to adapt to continuously evolving educational situations. Educators across the state have reviewed numerous fact sheets, presentations, reports, and engaged in regular conference calls with Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath, and many remain undecided on what the 2020-21 school year might look like.

Recently, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) recommended that school districts use a series of various surveys to ask families about their aspirations going into the next school session.
