Remote Learning extended to the end of the school year

Governor Abbott announced Friday that all schools across Texas will continue with remote learning through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.  The School of Excellence in Education will continue to provide quality and engaging remote learning experiences for our students, student support services, and meals-to-go for the remainder of the school year.  Contact your campus teachers and administrators for any of these services and any other concern that you have that we can help you with.  Continue to review the COVID Resource Page on the website and listen to call alerts as information is made available.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many challenges for schools, families, and the community.  We are committed to continuing our partnership with you and our students in the short and long-term.  Thank you for supporting, encouraging, and monitoring your students, as well as your patience and understanding as we deal with this unprecedented situation.  We know that graduation for our seniors is a concern.   We will keep you updated as more decisions about COVID-19 mandates are made available.

The academic and social well-being of our students are our top priorities.  Stay well and safe.
