As previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper, Spring ISD implemented several changes for the spring 2021 semester in hopes of improving the in-person and remote learning experience for both students and teachers. While students were able to switch between in-person and remote learning on an almost day-to-day basis in the fall semester, students are only able to change their preferred learning mode at the start of each new grading period in the spring semester.
Middle school and high school students who would like to move from remote learning to in-person or from in-person to remote learning for the next grading period can do so by clicking here. For the next grading period, which begins Feb. 22, district officials encouraged students who are struggling academically or with attendance to consider in-person learning.
"We would like to encourage more of our remote learners to return to in-person instruction where they can benefit from interaction and collaboration with peers and teachers. Of course, the decision of whether to learn at home or in person will be a family choice," the release reads.
According to the district's online Learning Tracker, 57% of SISD students are learning in-person, while 43% are learning remotely. At the elementary level. 66.8% of students are learning in-person, while 33.2% of students are learning remotely. Additionally, 55.2% of middle school students and 41.7% of high school students are learning on-campus, while 44.8% and 58.3%, respectively, are learning at home.
