School district going with online classes, for now

“This is one of those decisions that won’t be popular. As we are learning fully online, we will not be participating in co-curricular or extracurricular activities. That means marching band, football practice, volleyball practice, any class will be online during the online period,” said superintendent Dr. Charles Dupre.

Fort Bend ISD shared the information in a series of tweets, explaining that engagement in online learning will be required on a daily basis.

“Devices will be provided where needed, and we will make special arrangements for students with no internet connectivity at all in their home,” said Dupre. “We will support gaining access for figuring out another way to make sure that child is being educated from the first day of school.”

Schools will phase in face-to-face instruction with small groups.
