CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Five Corpus Christi Independent School Districts will begin following a hybrid model for in-person instruction on Monday, October 5. The district said the high schools will be doing this to maximize safety.
The high schools that will be following the model are Carroll, King, Moody, Ray, and Veterans Memorial. The schools will follow the hybrid model for the rest of the school year, but this could change depending on conditions relating to the coronavirus pandemic. The district said Miller High School will not be following the hybrid model.
“The hybrid approach reduces the number of students in a classroom at one time, allowing students to attend on-campus classes at least two and sometimes three days each week and participate in remote instruction during the remaining weekdays,” said officials with the district.
Daily attendance is required, and students will follow their schedule regardless of their setting. The district said the student body will be split by alphabet and will alternate “weeks of three days a week in the physical classroom followed by two days a week on campus.”
The district also said safety protocols established during phase one and two will remain.
According to the district, the Texas Education Agency permits grades 9-12 to opt for a hybrid plan. CCISD will continue to offer remote instruction for the 2020-2021 school year for those who prefer to do so.
