Spring ISD looking at reopening scenarios for 2020-2021 academic year
HOUSTON – After revealing their 2020-2021 academic calendar late last month, Spring ISD’s Board of Trustees will introduce a few reopening scenarios during a June 30 special meeting. A spokesperson for Spring ISD said that the calendar has been approved already, with staggered breaks throughout the year based on TEA’s recommendations to accommodate possible disruptions due to the coronavirus pandemic. According to a press release, the district will assemble teams to look into class configurations, instruction, student and staff support, nutrition and transportation issues. Spring ISD parents will receive a survey next week to give feedback on the new school calendar and possible reopening scenarios should an outbreak occur, whether schools reopen with strict social distancing measures or continue with distance learning, the release said. “Spring ISD has a strong commitment to offering opportunity and choice to our students and families,” said District Superintendent Rodney Watson.
