Opportunity to Switch Instructional Models Opens November 16th

Starting Monday, November 16, 2020, San Angelo ISD will open the window for two weeks only to switch instructional models effective for the next 9-week grading period that begins on January 5, 2021. The last day to opt to switch will be Tuesday, December 1, 2020.

San Angelo ISD families and students can select from two instructional models: traditional, in-person instruction with safety protocols or the fully virtual option, our Virtual Academy. 

If you wish for your student to remain in their current instructional model preference, no action is required from you at this time. This will be the only opportunity for students to switch instructional models until the window to switch for the fourth 9-week grading period opens sometime in February 2021.

Below we outline the process to request a switch in your student’s instructional model:

  • Complete and submit an online Instructional Model Switch Request Form no later than Monday, December 1, 2020. The forms are specific to each school, and you will need to complete one for each of your students. Links for each school form will be available on November 16, 2020 via email or the SAISD website. Please review the information you provide to ensure it is correct including your current phone number.
    • (Examples regarding form completion: If you have a third grader at Bonham Elementary and a sophomore at Central High School, you will fill out one Bonham request form and one Central High School form. If you have two students at Bonham, then you would fill out two forms for Bonham, one for each student.)
  • Upon successfully completing the request form, you will receive a confirmation email with a copy of your submission. We recommend that you print or save a digital copy and keep the copy of the confirmation email for your records.
  • Your campus will verify your switch selection. Your student’s campus will call you to follow up and verify that you are requesting the switch and to discuss other related information. It is important that you connect with your campus for this call. If you have students at more than one campus, you should receive a call from each campus.

We appreciate our families and students working with us to provide successful educational experiences as we navigate these new challenges. We are striving to be flexible and accommodate your needs within our capabilities.
