LISD and Tarleton Regarding the Distinguished IDGH School Partnership Program
LISD families and community, As a follow-up to my update, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) has announced that remote learning will be allowed for the 2020-21 school year and have released guidance on the two remote options. At the bottom this letter I have included the definitions of each of those remote instruction options. For each of the remote instruction models, districts are required to submit to TEA an attestation checklist (Synchronous) or a detailed plan (Asynchronous). Neither the attestation checklist or the plan template have been released to us yet by TEA. I can assure you, however, that our team has been working on all the options we will be able to offer our LISD students. We all expect, at some point, that in-person, on-campus learning will be allowed; however, that guidance has just been released. Once on-campus instruction is able to occur, there will also be an option for a hybrid model which will be a blend of remote and on-campus instruction. There have also been a lot of questions regarding remote learning and the ability to participate in extra-curricular and UIL activities. That decision or guidance has not been provided to us yet either. Questions, comments or concerns? Please contact me on my office phone, 254-968-2596 or email, email@example.com Remote Synchronous Instruction – Two-way, real-time/live, virtual instruction between teachers and students when students are not on campus. In this method, the required amount of instructional time is scheduled each day, and funding is generated when attendance is recorded daily at a locally selected snapshot time. Synchronous instruction is provided through a computer or other electronic device or over the phone. The instructional method must address the required curriculum, per TEC, §28.002. Other Examples: Live interactive classes with students & teachers participating real-time, teacher supported work time on video conference calls, scheduled and timed online tests. Remote Asynchronous Instruction – Instruction that does not require having the instructor and student engaged at the same time. In this method, students learn from instruction that is not necessarily being delivered in-person or in real time. This type of instruction may include various forms of digital and online learning, such as prerecorded video lessons or game-based learning tasks that students complete on their own, and pre-assigned work and formative assessments made available to students on paper. The instructional method must address the required curriculum, per TEC, §28.002. Other Examples: Self-paced online courses with intermittent teacher instruction, pre-assigned work with formative assessments on paper or in a Learning Management System, watching pre-recorded videos of instruction with guided support.

The planning team will begin analyzing this document and will participate in the training that TEA will will be offering to us this next week. As we prepare our plan over the next few weeks we will keep you informed of the new procedures we will implement. Thank you for your patience.

Lingleville ISD The District has been working on plans for starting school for the 2020-2021 school year. Our currently adopted calendar has the first day of classes for students as August 24, 2020. This will not change. What may change are the options we have for meeting the mandated amounts of instruction. . We plan to add flex days in June to allow time to be made up should the District have to shut down for any reason during regularly scheduled class days, and the school day could be extended 15 minutes. We know that in school, face-to-face instruction works best for student learning, and that is the focus for our plans to start school. The Texas Education Agency has yet to release guidelines for how this should be implemented. What they have given us is the guidelines for remote options of instruction (at home virtual learning). These guidelines are much more stringent than those we, as a district, implemented this past spring during the closure. More details will follow on these choices. The District will post a survey (or questionnaire) to our website soon for you to fill out, which will provide us the input we needed as we move forward with our planning. Whether you choose in school instruction or remote instruction is your personal decision. If you are concerned for your child’s health or exposure to COVID-19 especially if they are immunocompromised, the option for remote instruction is available. LISD will work diligently to ensure that the remote instruction matches the face-to-face experience as closely as possible. For those that choose a regular school setting for your children, LISD will take all necessary precautions as outlined by TEA as well as those that are necessary to ensure that the health and safety of your student will be protected as much as possible, to keep them healthy and in school. Your child’s safety is our priority. We have plans in place to sanitize and keep the classrooms as clean as possible and will practice health and safety procedures throughout the buildings. We will share more information on this as we progress through the summer months.
June 30, 2020 Lingleville ISD with help from our wonderful support groups, Lingleville Baptist Church, Lingleville ISD PTO, and Lingleville Booster club will be providing school supplies for all students from Pre-K thru eighth grades. During the trying times, we have been going thru; with the school closure from COVID-19 and the economic impacts from the pandemic’s effects on jobs and incomes of our community these groups of individuals have dedicated the resources they have to help our student’s families as we prepare to start a new school year. This community spirit makes Lingleville a wonderful place to live and work in. Thank you, Curt Haley
As most of you have undoubtedly read or heard, Governor Abbott recently announced schools will be reopening for on-campus instruction for the 2020-21 school year; however, no specific guidance has been issued to districts regarding how that reopening will occur. For two weeks we have been told specific guidance regarding in-person, on-campus instruction would be released by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). Last week, and again yesterday, TEA Commissioner Mike Morath told us they are unable to give us any final guidance for in-person instruction but will do so as quickly as possible. TEA has released guidance on how districts will be expected to provide any remote instruction to students and that guidance can be found online at tea.texas.gov/coronavirus. Whatever school looks like in the fall, and right now we have no idea how it will be, our focus will continue to be on the health and safety of our LISD students, staff, families and community. As we have all discovered through this pandemic, it is an ever-changing and evolving situation and we will continue to monitor it. As we receive information and guidance from state and local officials, I will keep you all updated. We look forward to the day we can see all of our LISD students together again, whenever that may be.
