20-21 Return to School Plan
Statement of Purpose and District Commitments
As the Manor Independent School District (MISD) plans for the start of the 2020-21 school year, we are
committed to keeping all members of our community informed: our families, staff, students, and the
broader community. While there are still many uncertainties regarding what the upcoming school year will
entail, we are working diligently to ensure that our students continue to have access to a high-quality
educational experience, and both students and staff are safe.
The Texas Education Agency, in partnership with the Travis County Health and Human Services
Department, has developed guidance to support districts and communities in determining their plans and
strategies for reopening schools. MISD's School Re-Entry Task Force's roadmap provides a tiered
approach with clear, actionable steps that are advisable before students and employees return to school
buildings, along with guidance that is applicable throughout the 2020-2021 school year.
This approach is built upon the guidance and recommendations of health officials; it is strongly aligned to
the reopening guidelines that have been provided by our state and federal leaders; it’s designed to help
districts prioritize the health and safety of students and teachers as they open school buildings and deliver
instruction for the 2020-2021 school year.
MISD's School Re-Entry Task Force's roadmap focuses heavily on the health and physical requirements
necessary for reopening school buildings. The Texas Education Agency will continue to provide guidance
and recommendations to districts and schools on navigating the academic, social, and emotional effects
of the COVID-19.
