On Tuesday, June 23, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) was to provide school districts across the state with important information regarding in-person instruction for the 2020–21 school year. During the call with districts, TEA provided models for remote instruction; however, it did not provide additional guidance regarding in-person instruction. TEA is examining the public health situation, working closely with the Governor’s Special Advisory Council, and continuing to monitor the rapidly changing landscape before it releases plans for in-person instruction for next year. The Agency has indicated it will provide further guidance , yet to be determined.
It is that time of year again, Employee Benefit Review and Open Enrollment announcement.
- Open Enrollment will be July 15 – Aug. 11 this year. All returning staff will have to complete their open enrollment process before Aug. 11. Specific plan information and available assistance will be sent out via email and standard mail closer to the enrollment month.
