Virtual Instruction Application Is Now Open

Till Friday October 7th, 2022

Review of Student Eligibility for ECISD Virtual Instruction (Available for K- 6th grade students):

  • All students referred for consideration for virtual instruction must be enrolled students of ECISD;
  • Virtual Instruction will be limited to 10 percent of the district’s total enrollment;
  • Priority will be given to the students that are considered medically fragile. The student must have a documented medical condition that places the student at a higher risk of severe illness as designated by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC); 
  • The student MET standard for all STAAR or K-2nd diagnostic assessments in the preceding year;
  • The student earned a 70 or higher in all of the foundation curriculum courses (Reading Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies) taken virtually in the preceding school year, and;
  • The student had less than 10 percent unexcused absences (Ex: 180 days = 18 absences) in the preceding year. 

Key Considerations:

  • Applications will be reviewed by a District Virtual Instruction Admissions Committee. 
  • Students must maintain adequate attendance, academic performance and demonstrate appropriate online behavior.
  •  Students that do not demonstrate adequate academic progress will return to in-person instruction.  
  • STAAR and other state mandated assessments will be administered in-person as required by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) guidelines.  
  • All applications will be reviewed and considered by the ECISD Virtual Instruction Committee on a case-by-case basis.
