Conroe ISD Presents 2020/2021 School Year Instructional Options
CONROE, TX – Conroe ISD has announced instructional options for the 2020/2021 school year. The district’s “Roadmap to Reopening” plan is now available on the Conroe ISD website at www.conroeisd.net/roadmap-to-reopening.
The district will provide both traditional in-person instruction, and online instruction. In special circumstances, a hybrid model will be used when the traditional in-person instruction model is interrupted for a period of time and students and staff temporarily convert to remote/distance learning model. Curriculum guides for the school year have also been provided.
Following the release of this information, on Monday, July 13, 2020, Dr. Curtis Null, Conroe ISD Superintendent, will provide a live update on the district’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/ConroeISD. Beginning now, parents and guardians may submit questions and comments for Dr. Null to address during the update. The form is available at www.conroeisd.net/roadmap-to-reopening at the bottom of the page.
To navigate this reopening process, Conroe ISD has created a Reopening Task Force.
As this is a constantly changing situation, Conroe ISD will update the website as it receives guidance from the Texas Education Agency, Governor’s Office, and State and local officials. Please check the webpage often for the most up-to-date information.
Both programs will follow Conroe ISD’s TEKS-based curriculum. Families will be asked to select one of these options when they complete their enrollment or information review in Enrollment Online. Should a family want to change their student’s selection, changes must be requested by midnight on July 28, 2020, by emailing or calling their student’s campus using the contact information at the top of the campus website. Changes to the selection can also be made at the end of the nine-week grading period.
Conroe ISD is offering traditional in-person instruction for the 2020-2021 school year. This will be a 5-day-a-week program with standard school hours. Students and staff will follow social distancing, mask, and hygiene guidelines as appropriate and detailed on the In-Person Instruction webpage.
Conroe ISD’s remote/online instruction option will follow the pace of the current Conroe ISD scope and sequence. It will support students in continuing to develop a love of learning and gaining appropriate academic and social-emotional skills. The level of rigor, workload, time commitment, and scheduling of classes will be different from the distance-learning plan implemented in the spring of 2020. To learn more, please visit the Remote/Online Instruction webpage.
Intermittent In-Person and Remote Learning
SPECIAL SITUATIONS ONLY: An intermittent model will be used when the traditional in-person instruction model is interrupted for a period of time and students and staff temporarily convert to Remote/Distance Learning Model.
