Here’s what Houston-area school districts are doing this week to prepare for the upcoming school year:
The Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District Board of Trustees will convene in a special-called board meeting to discuss the district’s reopening plan on Tuesday, July 21, 2020, in the boardroom of the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District Instructional Support Center, located at 10300 Jones Road, Houston, Texas. Among other things, the board will consider modifying the 2020-2021 approved instructional calendar to help minimize instructional disruptions and adjust for learning loss in the event of future school closures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, authorizing the superintendent to approve the purchase of desk and tabletop protective dividers through Board approved cooperatives at an amount not to exceed $3.75 million.
While Deer Park ISD has not announced final plans yet, they will offer two different options: in-person instruction and remote learning.
Friendswood ISD will reveal its plan to reopen schools at a board meeting.
The school district previously said it will offer both face to face and virtual options- as guided by the T-E-A but has yet to layout how their plan will work. That’s expected Monday.
