2020-2021 Plans

For Re-Opening 

DENISON ISD 

A Message from Denison ISD Superintendent Dr. Henry Scott...

As Denison ISD plans for the 2020-21 school year, we know that we must be prepared to deliver a high-quality education for our students in a number of ways, and we must ensure our students and staff are safe as school starts again in the fall. While the future related to the COVID-19 virus remains uncertain, planning for the fall is underway. In determining steps forward, there is a concentrated focus on several key priorities:

 

Health and Safety

We will continue to put the safety of students and staff at the forefront of our planning. We are committed to providing safe and clean learning environments where students can learn and grow together. When we return to the classroom this fall, all appropriate precautions and protocols will be in place.  A District Safety Task Force will be assembled and charged with developing a plan to ensure the safety of our students and staff.

 

Parent Choice

We understand that some parents are concerned about the possible state of the pandemic in fall and are interested in educational choices for their children, including learning from home; while other parents are hopeful that we will return to a more traditional classroom setting. In preparation for the start of a new school year, we are working on plans to provide traditional face-to-face learning options, as well as at-home learning options that will allow students to remain enrolled in Denison ISD with all the benefits and support available in a strong, competitive public school system.

 

Equity

We know that education is not a one-size-fits-all opportunity. We are committed to providing an equitable, differentiated learning experience designed to meet the needs of each student.

 

Communication

We await guidance from the Texas Education Agency about reopening school and anticipate more clarity from the agency in late June or early July.  In the meantime, we will continue developing our plans and options so that we are prepared for whatever parameters are set by the State for returning to school. The District will keep you informed as future decisions are made regarding 2020-2021. To that end, the Denison ISD website will be updated as new information becomes available. Our hope is that we will all return to our campuses on August 13 to resume school as normal in a healthy and safe environment.

 

School Calendar

Denison ISD will proceed with the adopted school calendar for 2020-21, with school starting on Thursday, August 13th.  Should a school closure become necessary, the District can revisit the calendar at that time.

 

Survey

We have developed a survey for parents/guardians to complete.  Your participation is vitally important.  The information we receive will help us organize for staffing and instructional planning for the 2020-21 school year.  Our goal is 100% participation on the survey!  Click the link below to complete the survey. The deadline for completing the survey is Thursday, July 16.
