Virtual Learning Option

  • Keller ISD is currently offering a Virtual Learning Option for students in grades K-6.

    This temporary, asynchronous virtual classroom option (no live instruction) was provided for students in grades K-6 who would prefer to attend school remotely instead of in person. This learning environment allows students to engage in at-home virtual learning, utilizing Keller ISD instructional resources in kindergarten through sixth grade – ages where COVID-19 vaccinations are not yet available.

    With COVID-19 cases currently decreasing in Keller ISD and with discussions that a vaccine may be available for children under the age of 12 toward the end of the year, the District plans to end the VLO on November 19, with the plan to welcome current VLO students back to campuses on November 29. VLO lessons will end on November 12, and the week of November 15-19 will be a transition week for VLO students to visit their home campuses, meet their teachers, and re-engage in the campus teacher’s learning management system to review content on which in-person students have been working. Keller ISD’s Fall Break will be held November 22-26.

    Keller ISD leaders had hoped that Senate Bill 15 – passed in August during the Texas Legislature’s second special session – would provide funding for continued virtual learning within the District, but the law’s strict eligibility requirements prevent it from fully funding KISD’s virtual program. 

    Families of current VLO students will be provided more information about the transition process in October and November, so please be on the lookout for communications from Keller ISD and the KISD VLO faculty and staff.
