BAYTOWN, Texas – Before the school year begins, Goose Creek CISD has decided on the options for students receiving virtual instruction at the start of the school year as well as implementing a hybrid model.
The district said the hybrid model, which includes face-to-face instruction, will provide modified instructional days. The model will also limit class sizes to no more than 15 students.
“Since the safety of our students and staff is our priority, campuses will provide social distancing, ensure campuses are cleaned frequently and enforce the use of masks,” the district said. “The proposed hybrid model for the grade levels will be posted on the district webpage for you to review.”
Here’s what to know so far:

Instruction methods offered
Goose Creek ISD plans to offer virtual learning as well as a hybrid model which includes face-to-face instruction.
The district will start the school year with all students participating in virtual instruction for at least the first three weeks.
If parents prefer their child/children to continue receiving instruction virtually at home, the district says they will need to register by logging in to the Parent Portal and selecting the student you want to register for 100% virtual at-home learning.
If you choose to register your child for 100% Virtual At-Home Learning, the district said the child must complete the first six weeks before changing the method of instruction. The district asks parents to register students for virtual learning on Friday, July 10.
Once the district transitions to the hybrid model, every student enrolled will attend school daily, Monday - Friday. The model will limit class sizes to no more than 15 students.
Elementary school students will either attend Campus A from 7:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. or Campus B from 8:15 a.m. to 2:50 p.m.
Junior High students will attend school as a part of either Group A from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or Group B from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
High School students will attend school as a part of either Group A from 7:15 a.m. to 11:25 a.m. or Group B from 11:25 a.m. to 3:35 p.m.
A district survey was sent out to parents in June.
