Forney ISD continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19. The District receives regular updates and guidance from Texas Governor Greg Abbot, Texas Education Agency (TEA) Commissioner Mike Morath and other local, state and federal agencies regarding response, prevention and mitigation efforts. The guidance has continually evolved and will continue to change based on conditions across the state and our local community. Below is our current plan for the start of the 2020-2021 school year, and the plan is subject to change based on additional information and guidance from any of the above mentioned agencies.
- PK-12 On-Site Instruction
- K-12 Virtual Academy*
*Students will be allowed to take identified TEA and/or UIL recommended courses onsite during school hours that cannot be taught in a virtual setting, such as Welding, Culinary, Electrical Technology, Band, Athletics, etc. Transportation will not be provided.

**All K-12 students will be encouraged to stay connected and allowed to participate in before and after school clubs, organizations, extracurricular activities, and tutorials/interventions. These may include but are not limited to Student Council, NHS, chess club, fishing club, etc. If on-site, transportation will not be provided.
***Parents will be asked to confirm the learning setting to begin the school year. A commitment form will be sent out and finalized by August 3rd. The faster a commitment form is completed, then we can quickly inform teachers if they will be teaching face-to-face or virtually. Parents will be able to request a change in learning environments up to two weeks prior to the end of each 9 week grading period.
