GISD Return to School Plan

 

As we plan for our to return to learn this fall, Godley ISD is working to ensure the safety, well being, and continued academic growth of all our students. While we feel that it is important for students to experience a traditional classroom setting, after surveying our community and staff, we understand that not everyone is comfortable returning face-to-face during the current circumstances. Therefore, Godley ISD will offer three options of instructional delivery models for our students: traditional face-to-face learning on campus, at-home virtual learning, or a blended model. During enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year, each family will be prompted to choose the learning style that is best suited for them. New student registration is on July 14th and returning student registration will now open July 15th.

 

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions document surrounding our return to school plans here: Return to School FAQ. This is a working document and we will be updating it with questions and answers often.

 

Also, please note that as we plan for face-to-face learning the guidelines the District is receiving from the state and local governments are fluid and frequently changing. As adjustments are made in these guidelines, we will adjust our plans accordingly. You can read more about the latest guidelines (as of 7/7/20) released from TEA here.

 

We ask that you continue to be patient with us as we navigate through the specifics regarding all aspects of this upcoming school year. We are not making any decision lightly, and will always release information as soon as we can. We appreciate your support thus far and regardless of which learning style is chosen for your family, we look forward to serving our students again soon!

 

 

 

Updated as of 7/15/20:

After much thought and consideration regarding the guidelines and requirements from the state, paired with the complexity of our secondary schedules, the blended learning option will only be available to high school students and must be approved by the school counselor.  The intent of this model is to allow students who need to attend specialized CTE classes the opportunity to both limit their exposure during the school day and complete their course requirements. If you feel your child meets these criteria and are interested in pursuing this educational option, you will be asked to meet with the school counselor to determine the best course options for this school year. We apologize for any inconvenience and/or disappointment this may cause, but feel confident that these changes will better accommodate our students and faculty during these unprecedented times.
