Sealy ISD: What you need to know about the district’s 2020-2021 school plans

Sealy ISD is providing both face-to-face and remote learning opportunities for students this upcoming school year.

Regardless of the teaching method selected by parents, the district is responsible for providing students with 75,600 minutes of instruction.

Should the year be disrupted and force schools to temporarily close, the district can transition to remote learning; however, lost time of face-to-face instruction would still have to be made up.

SISD is prepared with a plan for capturing additional minutes while minimizing changes to the adopted 2020-2021 school calendar.

Here’s what to know for the upcoming school year:
