The 2020-21 school year started off with 55% of Cy-Fair ISD students participating in remote learning through the district’s CFISD Connect program.

But given the choice to change instructional methods for the second grading period of the year, the district now expects many of those students to return to campuses starting Oct. 19 at the secondary level and Nov. 9 for elementary students.


According to new data obtained by the district, about 61% of students plan to take in-person classes, and 39% will be enrolled in CFISD Connect for the second quarter of the academic year.

Chief of Staff Teresa Hull reported a total enrollment of 115,923 by Sept. 11. Based on this enrollment, about 18,000 additional students could be stepping foot on campuses since the start of the year Sept. 8.
