New TEA Guidance Allows Parent Choice to Take Effect Aug. 19

Guidance from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) changed Tuesday, July 28, based on the opinion letter issued by the Texas Attorney General this morning.

As TEA’s guidance now indicates that “a blanket order closing schools does not constitute a legally issued closure order for purposes of funding solely remote instruction,” school will begin on August 19 with families able to choose whether their student(s) will attend in-person or remotely, beginning that day.

A Special Meeting of the Board of Trustees will be held on Monday, August 3, to discuss this change in guidance and consider whether any action is necessary for the successful opening of our 2020-21 school year. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work through this new information.
