The TCISD Board of Trustees approved a new instructional calendar beginning with virtual instruction on Aug. 24 for all students. Face-to-face instruction begins on Sept. 14 for those that choose that option. Parents can also opt to continue virtual learning. The Board also agreed that students who continue virtual learning once face-to-face begins, can still participate in extracurricular activities.
A COVID Task Force made up of parents, community, board members, teachers, staff, and administrators have put together a Reopening Plan. This document could change based on current state and federal mandates, recommendations and guidance.

- How will remote/virtual learning work?
- Will the district be providing laptops for students for virtual learning? When can we get them?
- If parents choose the remote/virtual option, can they transfer their student back to face-to-face learning? How will that affect the 15:1 ratio?
- If I do not want my child to attend school for safety reason and they are not progressing academically through virtual learning, what supports will be provided?
- How will remote/virtual learning in 2020-21 be different from online learning at the end of the 2019-20 school year?
- Why is the district requiring students who choose remote/virtual instruction to follow a schedule? Why can’t it be flexible like the spring so that working parents can teach their kids when they get home from work?
