The Aransas County Independent School District (ACISD) announced a further extension of its suspension in an effort to combat the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Wednesday, March 18. The ACISD will extend its suspension to Thursday, April 9. Students are now expected to report back to school Tuesday, April 14 after the Easter holiday.
The ACISD will re-evaluate the situation with other school districts in the week prior to April 14 to determine whether another extension is needed.
Starting Monday, March 23, students will begin distance learning.
The Texas Education Agency allowed districts the liberty to operate through distance learning.
Using a Google site built by the ACISD, students will be able to stay on track academically and communicate with their teachers. Students’ grades and attendance will also be taken through this system.
For grades Pre-K - 2, packets of work were distributed curbside at each student’s campus Friday, March 20.
For grades 3 - 12, students will receive assignments online through Google Classroom.
The ACISD will distribute Chromebooks to students in need of one to complete classwork. These were distributed Friday, March 20. More will be distributed Monday, March 23 by curbside at the respective student’s school.
Grades 3-5 will have some work supported by packet.
