Measures to Reduce Risks to Students and Staff during On-Campus Learning
New Caney ISD has developed a Flexible Learning Model to provide on-campus, in-person instruction or a remote instruction format utilizing the district’s learning management system, Canvas. The Flexible Learning Model provides for a continuation of instruction in the event a classroom or school must be temporarily moved to a remote instruction format.
The On-Campus Instruction Plan is designed to support on-campus, in-person instruction. It is the district’s plan to provide an on-campus learning option for students beginning Tuesday, September 8, unless otherwise determined by state and local authorities. During the 2020-21 school year, New Caney ISD will continue to follow the guidance provided by health officials as well as the Texas Education Agency. While it is not possible to eliminate risk of furthering the spread of COVID-19, the district has developed a set of measures to reduce the risks to students, teachers, and staff and create learning environments in our schools conducive to pursuing the district’s mission to prepare students for the REALITY of tomorrow.
These measures tighten or loosen depending on a school's or facility's standing in the district's COVID-19 Standard Response Protocol. The Standard Response Protocol was developed to guide the district's response in the event there is a case or cases of confirmed COVID-19 among students or staff. New Caney ISD district administration will monitor internal data and information from the health officials to determine whether a school or facility shall move from one stage to another. The factors for such decisions are subject to change to account for changing circumstances.
