Keeping Things Running and Optimistic During Closures

Our San Antonio- area public school districts have been working quickly and diligently to get students the tools they need to access online learning.  School staff and community volunteers have come together to make sure kids are safely receiving learning packets, devices, and technical support.  Teachers and administrators are keeping students’ spirits high by posting messages on social media, and students and parents are getting creative with ways to do the same in return!  It is wonderful to see how our schools and community are truly taking care of each other when they need it most!

 
 

Teachers and staff at La Vernia Primary School are keeping spirits up by sending uplifting messages of encouragement to their students via online photos!

Southwest ISD’s instructional continuity plan includes the distribution of laptops and learning packets in a quick curbside pick up.  School staff is helping to get the tools students need safely to their cars.

NISD also developed a device request process to assist District students who don’t have access to electronic devices and/or the internet at home.  Staff members call families, set up appointments, organize device check out, and deliver them to cars for pick up.

They are managed by a private entity vs a community elected board where the public has input. And their boards are appointed vs elected. This means that charter board members can have a financial interest in the success of the schools.
