RRISD Plans a New Virtual Option for Next School Year

By Amy Simon, Reporter

The Round Rock Independent School District (RRISD) announced a plan to bring a majority of students back to school for the 2021-2022 school year. For students still considering taking virtual classes, RRISD has proposed a new plan in which students will not be enrolled in their school, and instead will be enrolled in a separate virtual school.

This proposed new learning will be available for students in kindergarten through the 12th grade. All courses required to graduate will be offered for virtual learners, as well as a few electives, dual language classes, special education classes, and talented and gifted services. AP courses will also be provided, but classes will be determined by student enrollment and staff availability. Students taking the virtual option will not be considered for any extracurricular activities offered on their home campus.

“If we are able to provide a virtual option for families of students who continue to have concern about the potential health impact of COVID-19, virtual students will be taught by a certified Round Rock ISD teacher in separate (all virtual) classes from in-person learners,” RRISD said in an email.
