Katy ISD board approves 5-stage plan to respond to COVID-19

Dozens of parents and students attended Katy Independent School District’s special board meeting Monday.

The district presented a plan to respond to COVID-19, which includes a five-stage protocol for each campus to following depending on how impacted the district is by the virus.

Dubbed the “Safe Return to School” plan, the board approved the measure by a unanimous decision, after more than 40 members of the community spoke to voice their concerns over the pandemic, masks, and school.

Here is the breakdown:

  • Stage 5 - Prevention
  • Stage 4 - Mitigation
  • Stage 3 - Modified Operations
  • Stage 2 - Facility Closure
  • Stage 1 - District Closure
