Alvin ISD released its Forward 2020 plan July 13, giving parents the option of in-classroom or remote learning in the fall. Parents have until July 19 to enroll their students in virtual learning. However, district plans are subject to change as directives from the government or health officials change, according to the district website.
If parents opt for a virtual learning, they will commit to a nine-week grading period at least, according to the district's website. Parents may change from virtual to in-classroom learning, or vice versa, during the year.
For in-classroom learning, parents are expected to screen their child for COVID-19 symptoms before sending them to school. Campuses will also be cleaned throughout the day, according to AISD's website. The use of face coverings will vary depending on the level of threat in the district, according to the district website.
Pearland ISD sent out its Plan to Proceed on July 15. On July 15, Friendswood ISD released a draft of its back-to-school plan, which includes in-classroom and virtual options. FISD's plan will be presented to the school board July 20.
