Oglesby ISD Plan for 2020-21 School Year
Oglesby ISD has outlined its plan for the 20-21 school year. Because of the ever changing situation with COVID numbers and both state and TEA guidelines/mandates, this information is subject to change. Any updates/changes will be posted here as well as the school Facebook page.
We will begin school on August 12th. We will also offer remote instruction. Please see detailed information in the link below.
Please note: The remote instruction will look DRASTICALLY different than last spring. It will be all online. It will require the student to be in attendance (online) during the entire school day with the same rigor of instruction and assignments as in person instruction.
We will have a survey that parents need to fill out for each student to let us know which form of instruction you choose. You will need to commit for a grading period (9 weeks). We will get this out by the end of the week.
In compliance with David’s Law, Oglesby ISD is now using the Stop!t app to allow students/parents to anonymously report bulling. When an anonymous report is filed, the school will notify the parent of the student being bullied to discuss the problem and the options available.
To report a case of bullying, click on the Stop!t logo and use the code Tigers#01 The app can also be downloaded on your mobile device. Go to your App Store and search for the Stop!t bullying app.
