Results from a recent survey distributed to Cy-Fair ISD families from July 27-Aug. 25 indicated more than half of all district students are expected to engage in virtual classes during the first grading period of 2020-21.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, families have the choice of sending their children back to campuses for a more traditional education experience or taking classes remotely via CFISD Connect starting Sept. 8. According to the survey results, about 54% of students will be learning online, and about 42% will be on campuses.

Nearly 5% of families did not make their learning method selection by the Aug. 25 deadline, and officials have previously said they would plan for these students to be on campus in the fall.

Campuses with the highest percentage of students taking virtual classes include Thornton Middle School, Reed Elementary School, Jowell Elementary School, McFee Elementary School and Cypress Springs High School.

Campuses with the highest percentage of students taking classes on campuses include Swenke Elementary School, Bridgeland High School, Salyards Middle School, Sampson Elementary School and Hamilton Elementary School.
