SAN ANGELO, Texas — Beginning Monday through Aug. 7, San Angelo Independent School District parents and guardians will have the ability to select between either in-person instruction or the SAISD Virtual Academy for their children for the 2020-2021 school year.

Parents will have the ability to choose their instructional preference at each nine-week grading period, according to a release on the SAISD website.

A selection of instructional preference is only required for those who wish to enroll in the virtual academy. Students who do not opt-in to the virtual academy before Aug. 7 will be automatically enrolled for in-person instruction at their home campus.

Additionally, all students who are new to the SAISD should also complete a new student registration form.

Enrollment in virtual academy

All students who wish to enroll in our Virtual Academy should complete the virtual academy registration form which can be accessed at the links below:

Virtual academy registration form - English

Enrollment in in-person instruction

No action is required to enroll in-person instruction for the 2020-2021 school year. Students who do not choose to enroll in the virtual academy will be automatically enrolled in in-person instruction. 

New student registration

In addition to a choice of instructional method, all students who are new to San Angelo ISD (including new Pre-K and kindergarten students) should also complete the new student registration form.

(If you completed the new student registration form in the spring, you do not need to submit it again.) New student registration forms can be accessed at the links below. Upon first accessing the online registration website, parents will be asked to create an account.

More information will be provided as it becomes available.

The district said it is working on compiling a list of frequently asked questions about back to school to help parents understand both instructional options. The FAQ will be posted as soon as possible.
