Students in each district are given the option to choose between in-person and on-campus learning two weeks before the start of each quarter. The second quarter began Oct. 19 for both school districts.
As of Oct. 21, 7,089 NBISD students returned to campus and 2,180 chose remote learning, indicating a jump from 62% to 76.5% of students participating in face-to-face instruction for the second grading period.
CISD reported that 74% of students returned to campus for the second grading period, up from 60% at the start of the school year.
According to NBISD and CISD district officials, some students may experience class changes or teacher changes as the districts balance classes to accommodate more students returning to campus.
