On Thursday, July 23,  Superintendent Dr. Ken Gregorski made the announcement that, due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, Katy ISD will begin the first three weeks of the 2020-2021 school year on August 19th with 100% remote online instruction. This change was made in the interest of maintaining safety for our students, your families, and the entire school community. The purpose of this message is to share important information about the start of this academic year at OAC.</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">For the 2020-2021 school year, OAC will be moving away from the traditional model of instruction and students will be taking classes through Edgenuity or Canvas depending on their courses. This change will allow students to continue with instruction from their home-campus teachers, if needed, and remain in the courses they were enrolled in before receiving the disciplinary placement at OAC. Please know that there are some technical classes that will not be offered at OAC, and your student schedule will be discussed during intake with the counselor.</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">Making this change will alleviate the academic complications in transitioning to the OAC and back to the home campus. Students will receive instruction online but will be supported in the classroom by a teacher certified in the area of instruction. As we begin the school year from home, the teacher of record delivering content to your son or daughter student, will be certified in the content area.</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">When Katy ISD announced earlier in the summer that we would give parents the choice to send their students to school for face-to-face instruction or stay keep them at home for online instruction, those parents opting to keep their students at home were encouraged to enroll in the Katy Virtual Academy (KVA). Parents of OAC students can still choose the KVA option and those days will count towards their days of placement. For your convenience, I have included the link to the KISD return-to-school webpage with information to help you make this important decision: <a href="/returntoschool/Pages/default.aspx">http://www.katyisd.org/returntoschool/Pages/default.aspx</a></p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">Please note that if you choose the KVA option for your student, you must complete the KVA commitment form by August 5th, 2020. A link to the KVA commitment form can be found on the KISD return-to-school webpage included in this email. Scroll down to the bottom of the page linked above.<br></p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">Another important change for the 2020-2021 academic year is that KISD decided that all disciplinary placements at OAC are now 45 day placements. Students can earn an early release after 30 days. Early release is earned through good attendance, exemplary behavior, and academic success. The criteria for successful completion of those days while students are learning remotely from home is the same as it was in the Spring. The expectation is that students are logging on to their classes daily and completing lessons as assigned.</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">As we did in the Spring, KISD will be loaning laptops and connectivity devices to those families in need in order to facilitate instruction for the first three weeks of school. Information about when and where to check out technology will be forthcoming.<br></p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">I appreciate your patience and cooperation as we all deal with the impact the pandemic continues to have on our lives. This is an evolving situation, and I will do my best to communicate with you important information as it comes available. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me, contact the Associate Principal Ms. Valerie Murawka, or the Assistant Principal at OAC Ms. Janelle Coleman: </p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">DiegoSLinares@KATYISD.ORG ValerieEMurawka@KATYISD.ORG JanelleWColeman@KATYISD.ORG</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">On behalf of everyone at OAC, I wish you and your families the best and look forward to working through these challenges together.</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">Sincerely,</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">Dr. Diego Linares, Principal OAC/BTP/RHS<br></p><p><br></p></div>
