There is a more clear picture on what the coming school year will look like in Navasota ISD.
In a video to the district on Monday, Superintendent Dr. Stu Musick outlined the choices students will have for learning this Fall.
“One is on-campus learning, as much as possible, returning to normal, on-campus, face-to-face, real-time learning in classrooms. Second is at-home remote learning. If a parent or student is not ready to come back to school, or do not feel comfortable coming back to school on-campus, there will be some options that will provide remote learning,” said Musick.
He did note that if a student does choose at-home remote learning, they will not be allowed to participate in any extra-curricular activities.
For in-person instruction, there would be sanitary measures in place, such as daily cleanings, plus students and staff alike would be required to wear masks.
For remote instruction, Musick highlighted that students could do the work at any time of day, but there would be a portion of video instruction or something, to ensure daily attendance.
He also mentioned the addition of some more “if needed” days into the school calendar.
“This will allow us, if we have some school closures, to be able to have a plan for what we will do to make those days up,” said Musick. “And, most likely, those days will be built into the Spring, and then tacked on after the end of the school year, in case we need extra days for extended closures through the year.”
The state attendance laws will not be waived this year, as in the Spring. Musick said the rules of grading will also be back to normal, where leniency was granted this last year due to the pandemic.
Registration, plus a survey, will be available in the coming week for Navasota ISD students and parents, and available for 2 weeks.
School in Navasota is scheduled to begin August 24th.
