TEXAS (1080 KRLD)- The Texas Education Agency has released its health guidelines and instructions for students to return for this upcoming school year, 2020- 2021.
The TEA says the guidelines will ensure quality instruction whether students choose to return to the on-campus environment or choose at-home learning.
“Both as Commissioner and as a public school parent, my number one priority is the health and safety of our students, teachers, and staff,” said Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath. “That is why the guidance laid out today will provide flexibility to both parents and districts to make decisions based on the ever-changing conditions of this public health crisis. The state is and remains committed to providing a high-quality education to all Texas students, while ensuring the health and safety of students, teachers, staff, and families.”
Commissioner Morath wants to resassure legislative leaders are committed to fully funding in-class and remote instruction for every child in Texas regardless of their decision.
