Navasota ISD is beginning instruction in person for all students starting next week.
At a special board meeting held on Monday night, Navasota ISD board members heard from parents and students about their experiences this year with the new normal, and Superintendent Dr. Stu Musick said they made a decision after reviewing the numbers.
“We are discontinuing our online, at-home, remote learning option at the end of this nine weeks, which is basically this Friday (October 16th). Which means, next Tuesday, October 20th, when we come back to school for the second nine weeks…we will begin 100% on-campus learning, with the exceptions that I mentioned before,” said Dr. Musick.
Now, the option is discontinued for the students who simply chose the option. But, as Dr. Musick mentioned, there are exceptions to that.
“Students that are having to be at home, quarantining, or students that are being sent home for symptoms, or they are just having to quarantine for that 10-14 day period as well,” said Dr. Musick.
Also included in the exceptions are children with special needs and medical reasons.
He said the Google Classroom set up will remain updated for students who are still using the online platform because of medical reasons, or should there need to be a campus shut down for cleaning in the future.
Students that do not meet the exceptions will be in the classroom on Tuesday, October 20th for in-person instruction.
