Round Top-Carmine ISD will soon move exclusively to in-person instruction.
Superintendent Brandon Schovajsa said this decision was made after reviewing the academic success rates and attendance rates of on-campus learners compared to virtual learners. He said it was also because the district feels confident in the measures it has implemented to protect students and staff, saying those measures “have proven to be successful.”
According to Schovajsa, the only time the district will still provide remote learning will be for students who have a confirmed COVID-19 case or are considered to have been in close contact and are under quarantine by the district’s nurse or an approved health official.
Families who do not want their students to return to on-campus instruction will need to either switch to home school or transfer to a district that offers virtual instruction. The district asks families who choose one of these alternatives to contact their child’s campus to complete the required paperwork indicating their decision for their child’s education.
