Return to school options for fall 2020

Garland ISD families will select from two options for their children when returning to school in August:

  • Option 1: Full-time in-person on campuses, with heightened hygiene and disinfection protocols 

  • Option 2:  Full-time virtual eLearning with district-provided technology and internet hotspots, as needed.

GISD has been advocating with the Texas Education Agency and state leadership to be able to offer these two options.

Specific details on these two choices will be communicated once final guidance from the Texas Education Agency is shared; this is anticipated next Tuesday, June 23, 2020.  

We understand districts across the state have announced their plans.  GISD has always done the right thing for its families at the right time, which will occur when we receive that final guidance. 

Information will be coming soon about the process for parents to enroll students in the virtual eLearning option, as well as the school calendar with start/end times and transportation protocols.  

As always, please check the district website for updated information on return-to-school plans and FAQs once developed, and be sure your contact information is correct in Skyward.
