FLOYDADA—Floydada ISD is offering parents two options for educating their children this coming school year – send the children to school for face-to-face learning or opt for remote learning, according to statement released to the public.
Students choosing on-campus learning will receive daily temperature checks and other health protocols and will be required to follow social distancing guidelines. Students also will be able to participate in extra-curricular activities. FISD will have a 90 percent attendance rule in effect for students for the duration of the school day.
As for parents who decide to educate their children through remote learning, students will be required to meet daily attendance and will have their studies given to them 100 percent online.
Their learning will mirror the on-campus school day with a 90 percent attendance rule also in effect.
Students will need to have reliable internet and will need to complete daily assignments and will not be given the option to participate in extra-curricular activities such as athletics, band, etc. These students also will not be able to attend school activities that take place at home or away.
Remote learning during the 2020-20201 school year will be much more structured and will involve more rigorous requirements, according to the district’s statement. Once remote learning is selected, students must remain in that method of learning for the entire six-weeks grading period.
All parents/guardians should select the option that is best for their child, the district stated.
Floydada ISD will send out a survey in early August in which parents must make an official choice of on-campus or remote learning for their child. More details will be provided as the school year approaches, which is set to begin on August 17.
FISD hopes to make this year a safe and successful year for students and the school community.
