Overview

back to school 2020-2021Overview

 

Krum ISD will reopen with in-person and remote learning for students on August 19, 2020. Families will choose the instructional delivery method for their student to participate in by completing a form emailed directly to parents/guardians.

 

It is important to keep in mind that remote learning will not be the same as the remote learning offered during the spring of 2020. Remote learning during the 2020-2021 school year will include daily student participation and completion of work at home. Krum ISD students participating in remote learning will receive grades in accordance with Krum ISD’s EIA (LOCAL) policy on grading. The temporary grading policy enacted during remote learning in the spring of 2020 is no longer in effect. All students will be expected to meet Krum ISD’s attendance policy expectations as outlined in policy FEA (LEGAL)FEB (LEGAL), and FEC (LEGAL). All students are required to meet the 90% compulsory attendance rule for all classes.

 

District Calendar Changes

 

To provide teachers with more time to prepare for the unique offerings in instructional delivery for the 2020-2021 school year, the Krum ISD Board of Trustees approved a change to the district calendar on July 28, 2020, to reflect the first day of school for students as August 19, 2020.

Learning Options

 

Krum ISD will have two options for families to choose from for instructional delivery in the 2020-2021 school year beginning on August 19, 2020. 

 

            All Grades, PK-12

        • High-rigor, teacher-led, in-person instruction at the school that requires daily connection between teachers and students with health and safety precautions in place. 
        • Teachers will monitor student progress daily.
        • Campus operational guidelines will encourage and support social distancing where possible through classroom arrangements, learning design, and changes to arrival/dismissal, cafeteria and common area use, and other adjusted procedures. Krum ISD cannot guarantee that students will be able to remain 6 foot from one another or from staff for the duration of the school day.
        • Students participating in in-person learning will be expected to follow all KRUM ISD safety procedures put in place for the safety of both students and staff.
        • Students must complete and submit daily activities. 
        • Students that participate in in-person learning have the option to partake in extracurricular activities.

 

            Online Instruction for All Grades, K-12

        • Remote instruction will be a high-rigor, teacher-led instructional method that requires daily connection between teachers and students. 
        • Elementary students will be expected to participate in a minimum of 180 minutes daily of instructional engagement. 
        • Secondary students will participate in a minimum of 240 minutes daily of instructional engagement in a remote asynchronous (at your own pace) model with synchronous (virtual face-to-face) support from designated teachers via Zoom.
        • Students must complete and submit assignments daily to be counted present. 
        • Teachers will monitor student progress daily. 
        • Students that participate in remote learning will not have the option to partake in extracurricular activities.

*Families that do not have access to the internet are strongly recommended to take part in in-person instruction. Any family who does not have access to internet and/or devices for remote learning is still entitled to have their student participate in remote learning on Krum ISD campuses. A limited number of district owned Chromebooks and resources will be available for assistance. Families who responded to Krum ISD’s survey sent on July 8, 2020 indicating that they did not have access to internet and/or devices will be contacted to make arrangements.  

 

Extra-Curricular Activities

As of October 15, 2020, any student who chooses to participate in remote learning will not have the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities. Additional information on participation in extracurricular activities while in remote learning can be found under Krum ISD’s Remote Learning Considerations
