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.
