    Update from Dr. Diane Frost, Superintendent of CISD

    Student Learning Options for 2020-2021

    We know that everyone is anxiously awaiting the beginning of school in the fall. As of today, CISD is still planning to follow the calendar adopted last spring with a start date of August 13th. If we receive further guidance from the State, we will send out that information. The main purpose for this communication is to let you know that CISD will be providing three different learning options for the 2020-2021 school year. The options that are available to each grade level were established by the Texas Education Agency.

    1. In-person learning on campus in a traditional classroom setting (Grades Pre-K through 12) with enhanced, thorough safety and health procedures
    2. Virtual At-Home Learning that is scheduled and fully guided by a CISD teacher (Grades 3-12)
    3. Virtual Self-Directed learning that occurs each day, but on a schedule set by parents and/or students; CISD teachers will be available for support at scheduled times (Grades Pre-K through 12)

    A detailed “Return to School Framework” describing District protocols for health and safety as well as these three instructional options will be discussed by the Board at its meeting on July 13th. The Framework will be posted on the web site and distributed following the meeting. 

    Please look for a parent Learning Option Selection Form that will be emailed to parents and posted on the web site on July 20th. The Commissioner has asked Districts to delay until the two weeks before school starts before asking parents to make a final commitment; however, you may begin making this selection on July 20th. This window will allow parents to gather the information that you need from District publications, the information that will be published on the web site to include the Q&A, and/or to contact campuses for answers to questions that you might have.

    Corsicana ISD Plans for 2020-2021

    Dear Parents and Community:

    Today, additional guidelines we were released from the Texas Education Agency for the opening of schools next year. I know you have been as anxious as we have been [at Corsicana ISD] to receive these guidelines and determine the best possible plans for our students’ education. Most of the information was related to student and staff safety.

    The Commissioner addressed in-person and virtual instruction as well as non-UIL extracurricular sports and activities. Guidance for on-going cleaning and sanitization of campuses as well as practices for students and staff throughout the school day follows the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines. The current science suggests that there are many steps schools can take to significantly reduce the risks to students, staff, teachers, and their families. Today’s guidance included requirements for schools to communicate preventative practices, respond to laboratory confirmed cases, and mitigate spread. We will ensure that our practices are aligned with these requirements and suggestions and then provide information to our families and staff.

    As our CISD leadership and Board of Trustees review these new guidelines with stakeholders and planning committees, we will be able to provide you with additional details on instructional options, and provide you with answers to your questions.

    I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and to let you know that we will present more details in the next few weeks. Our website will be updated with information for your Frequently Asked Questions as plans are finalized.

    Corsicana ISD is committed to providing the very best learning experience for your students in a safe environment. Thank you for your continued support.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Diane Frost

    Corsicana ISD Superintendent

    Frequently Asked Questions

    When will school start for Corsicana ISD?

    CISD is slated to begin Aug. 13, 2020. As we await further direction from the state, it is possible this date could be pushed back depending on several factors including: the safety requirements mandated for schools to provide time for acquisition and implementation; and the current COVID-19 infection and transmission rate in Texas and our community.

    Is there a limit to how many families can choose the in-person instruction option?

    CISD will be able to provide instruction to all students in whichever format their families choose. We will also comply with all mandates regarding social distancing as well as health and hygiene protocols.

    What happens if a student or teacher tests positive for COVID-19? How will this impact their classroom/campus?

    When notification of possible exposure occurs, CISD, in coordination with local health authorities, will begin contact tracing and complete a thorough risk assessment. Based on this assessment, a determination as to whether an entire classroom or multiple classrooms are required to quarantine will be made. Students will have the opportunity to access virtual content should a quarantine period be required.

    What hygienic/safety precautions will be in place at each campus?

    CISD will implement increased signage around campuses promoting COVID-19 mitigation strategies, increased cleaning and sanitation practices, as well as frequent reminders of hand hygiene and social distancing. 

    Face masks will be required for students over the age of 10, as this is a current order from the governor. CISD is looking into face shield options for teachers and staff. We will update more about this information as it becomes available. 

    Our full safety and reopening plan will be in accordance with TEA regulations. It will also be posted online, once approved. CISD will comply with all health and safety recommendations established by the health department and Texas Education Agency.
