The Socorro Independent School District has announced plans to begin remote instruction for students on July 27, 2020 for three weeks before reopening its campuses in a phased manner for in-person learning.

Summer has just started but a major source of angst and uncertainty revolves around when, how, and to what extend students will return for the 2020-2021 school year.  While instruction carried on in some form this past school year, COVID-19 led to the closure of learning institutions not only in Texas, but nationwide.

Several local school districts have already announced they are exploring changes to their instructional calendar, with Canutillo ISD already approving their switch to a year-round calendar early this week.  These adjustments will potentially allow for more flexibility within the school year in the event of another learning disruption.

  • July 27, 2020 – students will begin 3 weeks of full remote learning given by a teacher who is in the classroom via an online platform
  • After three weeks, 25 percent of students will begin in-classroom learning
  • Shortly after, 50 percent of students may begin in-classroom learning with the rest of the population being phased in, in a similar manner until they are back at 100 percent capacity.
