    2020 - 2021 School Year

    Virtual Learning Implementation Plan  (Subject to change)

    The plans and options presented in our Return to Learn Plan reflect a balance between maintaining the safety of students, staff members, and families in the face of this continued public-health uncertainty, while also delivering high-quality teaching and learning experiences that focus on excellent and equitable outcomes for all students.

     Students must have access to the Internet at home, the district will provide hot spots for students as needed. Students must have a device for their online learning. Families of elementary-aged students without a device in the home will have an opportunity to request a loaner device, as all secondary students are issued a device through our 1:1 program.

     

    Liberty Hill ISD is committed to providing rigorous, TEKS-based instruction to all students whether they attend school in-person or select a remote instructional setting. We recognize that this may be a challenging year but we are embracing the opportunity to expand and maximize learning for all students. Toward that end, Liberty Hill ISD will offer remote/virtual and face-to-face instruction for all students for the 2020-21 school year.

    Once parents select a model, the student will remain in that setting until the end of the six-week grading period before a change can be made to return to a face-to-face, in-person setting.

    The following outlines and details the plan for virtual learning implementation based on specific grade levels.  Please see the bottom of the page for information about our specialized services and content areas.
