SAN ANGELO, Texas — The San Angelo Independent School District is preparing for the 2020-2021 school year after Gov. Greg Abbott notified lawmakers of his plan to allow students to return to campus. 

According to an SAISD press release, the district decided on two options for instruction in the fall, which was decided on using guidance from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and information received from surveys sent to parents June 12.

The two options are:

  • Option one: In-person instruction, this includes face-to-face and in-classroom learning with safety protocols in place to protect everyone. The in-person instruction will be from Monday through Friday.
  • Option two: A fully virtual option, this will be online and will include daily log-in requirements. Students enrolled in the virtual option will be virtual for the entire semester and have the option of doing so for the full year.

The SAISD will update the public on its back-to-school plans beginning July 9, at which time parents and students will receive more information on the options, health and safety protocols as well as any additional information.

An electronic registration will be sent to parents to determine if their students will be attending on-campus instruction or via virtual learning beginning July 13 via SwiftK12.

Although the plans depend on continued guidance from the TEA and governor's office, the SAISD said it is committed to providing the highest quality of learning for its students and looks forward to seeing the students in the fall.

The district will continue to update students and parents  through its district website, social media accounts and Swift12.
