Sweeny ISD Virtual Learning Transition Plan

 In alignment with options granted by the Texas Education Agency, Sweeny ISD has elected to provide virtual learning for all students for the first four weeks of school.  The first day of virtual instruction is Monday, August 17th.  Parents will select virtual or in-person learning for their students by August 3rd.  Although all learning will be virtual to start the year, students who opt for in-person instruction will have a staggered reentry schedule during the week of September 14th.  

 There is no replacement for face-to-face instruction.  However, the delay of in-person instruction will provide time for a safe reentry for employees and students.  COVID-19 safety guidelines for in-person learning will require student/staff training, additional supplies/resources, and daily schedule adjustments.  In addition, all students and teachers must become acclimated to the state-required virtual learning grading, engagement, and attendance expectations in the event that another closure or personal quarantine is required during the year.  

 During this transition period, Sweeny ISD will make available breakfast and lunch to all students learning virtually with the option of home delivery or curbside pick-up. As we transition into in-person learning, breakfast and lunch will be available to students learning in-person in a socially distant cafeteria. Students that continue to learn virtually will continue to have meals available via home delivery or curbside pick-up.
