WISD Smart Start Back to School Plan & Learning Options Commitment

As promised, Weatherford ISD is offering our students and their families the opportunity to choose how they want to be taught for the 2020-2021 school year. There are two options: learning at school or remote virtual learning. While we want to see all of our students’ healthy smiling faces in our classrooms this Fall, we know that some of our families will want an online option for their children because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We respect your decision and encourage you to select the learning option that best fits your family. Our pledge is to support you and your children no matter what learning option is chosen.

A Message from Dr. Rees

I hope this message finds you and your family well.

Today, the Texas Education Agency announced that Texas schools may delay the start of the school year or limit in-person schooling for the first four weeks of 2020-2021. This information was announced this morning prior to any school district in Texas being given the opportunity to review details. As a result, our team will be studying the information released today and consulting with local officials to determine how this new information might affect Weatherford ISD.

In the meantime, Weatherford ISD is finalizing plans for the 2020-2021 school year. This information will be released to families and staff on Tuesday, July 21.

Please be patient with us as we plan for a safe start to the 2020-2021 school year while navigating the changes resulting from the COVID-19 virus. We will communicate with you as we learn new information or need to modify existing plans.

All the best,

Dr. Beau Rees
Superintendent of Schools
