The meeting will be held July 23 at 6 p.m. at the FISD Administration Building. There will be an opportunity for public comment.
District Superintendent Mike Waldrip announced FISD's plans for the fall at a July 16 virtual meeting.
The district decided on the all-virtual start due to the spread of the coronavirus, escalating numbers of coronavirus cases and direction from local health authorities, Waldrip told the FISD board at the July 16 meeting.
Parents recently submitted a commitment form for their student to participate in either virtual learning or on-campus learning for the fall. Preference between virtual and in-person learning is almost evenly split among families, according to results from the form.
As of when the form closed July 14, 46.89% of families chose face-to-face learning, and 44.19% chose all-online, or Virtual Academy, according to a July 20 district release. No response made up 7.52% of responses, and 1.41% of families are pursuing options outside of FISD.
Families will have the opportunity to select or change their learning environment July 27-30.
