, here is what the 2020-2021 school year will look like for ECISD students.

In a board meeting on Tuesday, ECISD laid out details for what education will look like in the county when school begins on August 12.

Kids from Pre-K to junior high will have three options for the upcoming year: completely face-to-face classes throughout the year, a hybrid of online and in-person class, or fully online education.

Students in high school will have to choose between a hybrid of online and in-person classes or exclusively online learning.

ECISD cited an inability to implement proper social distancing measures at high schools with larger student bodies as the primary reason for the lack of a totally face-to-face option for those campuses.

Health and safety measures:

Students from Pre-K through third grade will only be recommended to wear masks in class but will be required to wear them for transitions between classes.

For students in fourth grade through high school, masks will be required in class and must be warn in all situations except for during meals and outdoor activities.

All ECISD employees will also be required to wear masks and will be self-screening for COVID-19 symptoms before work each day.
