KELLER, Texas — Keller ISD will end its temporary virtual learning option next month, the district announced Tuesday, citing the decrease of COVID cases and a vaccine for children potentially coming soon.
The district provided a temporary virtual learning option for students in kindergarten through 6th grade, but without state funding district officials said it will end.
The last day of virtual learning lessons is Nov. 12. Current virtual learning students will return to campus on Nov. 29, the district said in a statement.
The week of Nov. 15-19 will be a transition week for virtual learning students to visit their home campuses, meet their teachers, and re-engage in the campus teacher’s learning management system, the district said.
"Keller ISD leaders had hoped that Senate Bill 15 – passed in August during the Texas Legislature’s second special session – would provide funding for continued virtual learning within the District, but the law’s strict eligibility requirements prevent it from fully funding KISD’s temporary Virtual Learning Option," the district said.
