Brahma Update July 22, 2020 HISD Strong Start 2020-21

Dear HISD Parents, Students, and Staff Members,

The HISD leadership team consisting of campus and district administrators, department heads, and teacher leaders met with the Board of Trustees on Monday, July 20th to review the HISD Return to School Plan.

Teachers and staff members have also had an opportunity to review the plan, and campus administrators are setting up meeting times for teachers and staff members to collaborate and discuss the implementation of the plan.

To effectively implement the plan, teachers and instructional staff members will need time to develop high quality lessons for families that choose the remote learning option. For example, teachers will need to have additional training in designing engaging lessons in our digital classroom platforms; creating, editing, and uploading instructional videos; and remote learning management and accountability.

Therefore, the first day of instruction has been moved from August 13th, to Thursday, August 20th to allow for teacher planning and training for remote learning.

The HISD leadership team is also developing a form where parents can notify campus principals regarding their choice of on-campus learning or remote learning. These forms will be sent out later this week.

Thank you for all of your patience and understanding as we carefully plan a safe and successful return to school!

Below you will find a link to the Hallettsville ISD Return to School Plan.

Brahma Update July 17, 2020 HISD Strong Start 2020-21

Dear HISD Parents, Students, and Staff Members,

The HISD leadership team consisting of campus and district administrators, department heads, and teacher leaders met on Thursday, July 16th and Friday, July 17th to develop a customized return to school plan for the students of Hallettsville ISD. The leadership team studied the results from the survey sent to all district stakeholders on July 8th and reviewed return to school plans developed by area schools and other districts across the state.

Our goal is to develop a plan that is appropriate for our schools and community keeping in mind the available resources and local preferences. This plan will address a variety of topics including: sanitation procedures, food service options, safe transportation, and face-to-face and remote learning options among many other topics. We are planning to release our return to school plan next week.

As you may know, our district has been experiencing a bus driver shortage in recent years and currently have three vacancies in our transportation department. Therefore, we need to know which families will not be able to transport their children to and from school in the event that we cannot hire enough bus drivers to cover all of our routes.

The bus survey will be mailed to all currently enrolled students or you may complete the survey at the link below.

Also, if you know someone interested in driving a bus, please have them call Donnie Steffek at 361-798-2242 Ext. 490.

Thank you for all of your patience and understanding as we carefully plan a safe and successful return to school!

Sincerely,

Dr. Jo Ann Bludau
Superintendent
Hallettsville ISD
