Learning Pathways for the 2020-2021 School Year

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.

Opportunity to Change Learning Pathways for the 2nd Six Weeks

As promised, we are now offering parents the opportunity to change the learning pathway for their student for the 2nd Six Weeks of school that will begin on October 5, 2020. The following options are available to all families:

  • Families with students enrolled in the VLA may now choose learning at school
  • Families with students who are learning school may now choose the online pathway through the VLA 


Important: Families who DO NOT want to change the learning pathway for their students do not need to complete the form.


The deadline to request a change in learning pathways is Thursday, September 17, 2020. If you have multiple children and wish to change pathways, please complete the pathway change form for each child.


*If this form is not completed by 10 pm on September 17th, students will remain in their current learning pathway.


Student schedules at the high school level are subject to change based on enrollment and course availability for the learning pathway chosen.
