Learning Environments for 2020-2021
Following the guidance of TEA, Priority Charter Schools will provide a traditional “at-school” environment for students as well as an “at-home” option for families who have concerns about their child physically returning to school. The decision of which learning environment is best is a personal, family choice. The district is committed to providing exceptional learning opportunities for students in both environments. Learn more about constants across both learning environments and details for each here.
At-School Learning is available for all students on all campuses. This option is a traditional school experience with enhanced health and safety measures taken in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It is likely, however, that At-School learners may begin classes in person and later move into intermittent remote learning environments because of COVID-19 outbreaks and/or government mandated closure of school buildings.
At-Home Learning in the 2020-2021 school year will look different from what students and families experienced last spring. At-Home learners will participate in an online learning option that is engaging, rigorous, and aligned with on-campus instruction. Students will be issued devices and expected to follow a daily schedule comparable to the regular bell schedule for At-School learners. The schedule will include time for learning activities completed both individually and together with teachers/classmates using a learning management system.
