Important Information for Online Learning Students

Update - Important Information for Online Learning Students
November 11, 2020

As the district has gone through this unique school year, Angleton ISD has monitored student academic performance to assess how to best serve students through the COVID-19 pandemic. The assessment of our Online Learning program has shown that some online students have not performed well academically and lack the time and resources to engage with teachers in order to be successful.

AISD is particularly concerned about online students who are failing or not attending classes. Therefore, at the end of the first semester, any AISD student in the Online Learning program who fails a class for the first semester and chooses to remain enrolled in AISD will be required to return to On-Campus Learning. The online student who is failing will be required to attend school on campus for the full school day unless he/she provides a medical exemption from a required healthcare provider for the student or someone who lives in the child’s home.

If parents of children who are failing and who do not have a medical exemption choose not to have their child return to On-Campus Learning, the parent will need to withdraw his/her child from AISD and choose to do homeschool or enroll the child in another school district.

Principals will be contacting the parents of those online students who are currently failing or who are at risk of failing. The campuses will send a letter home with the student as well as mail a letter to the home address. Campus administration will follow up directly by contacting parents of those online students who are in danger of failing a class for the semester to make sure they are aware of their child’s status and the expectation to return to On-Campus Learning starting on January 5, 2021.

If parents have any questions, they should contact their child’s principal.
