Welcome Back Jaguars!
We are so thrilled to welcome our students back for this 2020-2021 School Year! We know this start of the school year looks different than previous years, but we are here to help get the year started off right!
* Don't forget, if it is time for your child's shots, please get them taken care of as soon as possible. Students will need their shots to be up-to-date before returning to campus on October 6th.
Superintendent Hinojosa on Aug. 20 announced that after consulting with his senior leadership & county health officials, the district will open with 100% distance learning when school starts Sept. 8. Distance learning continues through at least Oct. 6.
Parents DISD needs to hear from you. At this time, Dallas ISD will offer parent options of either face-to-face or distance (at-home) learning beginning Oct. 5. Parents must select the learning model for their child. The survey choice is binding through the end of the grading cycle. One survey must be submitted for each child.
**Please take the time to complete as soon as possible as the deadline is September 16 to respond to the survey.
What does Opting-in mean?
- Parents selecting this option may return to the distance (at-home) learning model at any time during the grading cycle. Parents are required to notify their child’s school if they would like to return to the distance learning model. Once the distance learning model is selected, the student must remain in this model until otherwise notified.
Click here to acknowledge that you have read the available learning model options and to take the survey. Don't forget one survey must be submitted for each child.
How will learning will look like now (virtually)?
High quality instruction will be delivered through a mix of guided and independent methods:
Guided learning includes direct teach via video-conference tools, one on one check-ins and office hours, recorded lessons, and assessments.
Independent learning will happen through online software programs, playlist of activities, class assignments, homework assignments and assessments.
