Reopening Schools: Information & Updates
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.
This plan was put together through the diligent efforts of the MISD TaskForce to reopen schools.
