TEA announces remote learning guidelines
On Tuesday, June 23, Commissioner of Education Mike Morath provided guidelines from the state regarding how remote instruction could work in the 2020-2021 school year. Graham ISD Sonny Cruse sent a message to GISD parents via ParentSquare to briefly explain what this could mean for the district in the new school year.
“The new guidelines include provisions for two types of remote instruction- Remote Synchronous Instruction and Remote Asynchronous Instruction,” said Cruse.
According to a release by the Texas Education Agency, Remote Synchronous Instruction is two-way, real-time/live, virtual instruction between teachers and students when students are not on campus. In this method, the required amount of instructional time is scheduled each day. Synchronous instruction is provided through a computer or other electronic device or over the phone. The instructional method must address the required curriculum, per TEC, §28.002.
