    Keller ISD's Path Moving Forward

    Effective April 17, Governor Abbott closed schools for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. Given this information, Keller ISD will take the following steps to finish out the year, as well as work to intentionally and safely reopen this summer and for the 2020-21 school year. All steps below are dependent on the “phase-in” policy outlined by the Governor.

    1. Current academic learning will continue on our set instructional calendar. The last day of school is May 21.

    2. Graduation will officially be moved from May 23 to June 26-29 at Globe Life Field in Arlington. The specific dates each high school will graduate is yet to be determined, but will be communicated soon. This change was made as an alternative to the original back-up plan to move Graduation to July 25 at Dickies Arena. Additionally, an alternative photo opportunity will be provided in May for those students or families who are unable to attend the ceremony at Globe Life Field or who are not comfortable participating in an event with that many people. 

    3. All Prom activities are currently being evaluated regarding the level of interest from our students. If after hearing from the students, it’s determined to move forward with rescheduling, Proms may happen this summer. This is all dependent on our ability to have large gatherings as directed by the State of Texas. Rescheduled dates would be as follows: 

      Central High School | Saturday, June 27, at AT&T Stadium
      Fossil Ridge High School | Saturday, June 27, at AT&T Stadium
      Keller High School | Saturday, July 11, at AT&T Stadium
      Timber Creek High School | Saturday, July 11, at River Ranch Conference Center

    4. All Credit Recovery and Extended School Year services for special education students are currently being planned for online learning this summer. If we are able to open schools and have classes with small numbers of students this summer, we will make the appropriate adjustments at that time.

    5. An open campus day, dependent on the phase-in policy set forth by the State of Texas, is currently being planned for each school this summer. This is a day for kids and teachers to pick up items left in the buildings or return items back to the school. Each campus will create their plans with dates pending. This activity will be voluntary, controlled, and heavily monitored. 

    6. Schools will be ready to reopen as planned on August 19 for the 2020-2021 school year. As the summer progresses, if there is a change in guidance from the county or state, we will make the appropriate adjustments. 

    7. The Curriculum & Instruction team has been working on curricular adjustments for the start of the 2020-21 school year to accommodate for any lost learning that may have occurred during the spring closure. We will be ready to take care of our kids, regardless of where they are academically.
