NISD plans on July 6 start for summer school

Earlier this month, Gov. Greg Abbott cleared the way for public schools to begin offering in June summer instruction with in-person classes.

While Nacogdoches ISD is finalizing plans for how best to implement its summer school instruction, classes would not begin until July 6, providing the district time to fashion its plans to best fit the restrictions and guidance issued by the state.

The delay will also provide a much-needed break for teachers, students and their parents, who have been working in crisis mode since the middle of March, when school districts around the state began transitioning to distance learning models.

NISD’s summer school program is for students the district identifies for additional instruction.

The governor’s guidance issued on May 18 specifies that in-person summer school classes can only be optional, and that parents can choose not to send their child, instead choosing a virtual instructional process that would be completed at home.

Another important detail of the governor’s instruction is desks must be six feet apart to encourage social distancing. And that groups can number no more than 11, including students, a teacher and any support staff.

The full text of the guidance can be found on the Texas Education Agency’s coronavirus information website.
