While Leander ISD greenlights virtual learning for the fall, Austin ISD & others abandon plans

LEANDER, Texas (KXAN) — The Leander Independent School District Board of Trustees signed off on a plan to implement a 100% remote virtual learning option for families who want it in the fall.

The district will use $ 2.8 million in federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) stimulus dollars in order to do so after Texas legislators failed to pass a guiding framework that give school districts the option while still receiving full state funding.

“Based on vaccine distribution, low COVID-19 transmission rates in classrooms, and guidance and rules set by TEA, we believe that the best opportunity for most students is to learn in-person with their teacher on our LISD campuses,” LISD district officials wrote. “In keeping with our mission to partner with families and create safe and supportive environments to nurture each student’s personal growth, we believe it is important to offer this remote learning option.”

A May survey revealed that 504 students from 356 families expressed a medical need requiring a remote learning option. While all 504 students may not end up committing to the required one-semester of virtual instruction, the results were telling-enough to allow the trustees to unanimously vote in favor of paying the required cost to implement a virtual plan.

Many other Central Texas school districts have abandoned any plan to offer a virtual option to families, most often citing the legislature’s failure to pass HB 1468 as the reason remote learning is no longer being considered.

How other Central Texas school districts are planning for fall

The Texas Education Agency reports there is no existing statutory framework to authorize remote instruction for the fall 2021 school year. The agency used its disaster authority to allow full funding for remote instruction during the 2020/2021 school year, but it cannot be utilized any further. In addition, TEA Commissioner Mike Morath’s power, based on the state’s education code, was amended with the passage of HB 1525, which significantly limits any other options and leniency he can extend to school districts.

“As we plan our return to the on-campus experience our parents and students have come to expect from Round Rock ISD, we did, however, want to be able to provide a virtual option for a longer period of time for those students who may need it due to health concerns,” Round Rock ISD acting superintendent Dr. Daniel Presley wrote. “Unfortunately, a bill (HB 1468) in the Texas Legislature making that option possible for Round Rock ISD failed to pass this Legislative Session, which ended on Monday, May 31. Therefore the District will not be able to offer a virtual learning platform next school year.”

“In Hays CISD we are not offering a virtual option for next school year because it is not funded,” said Hays CISD spokesman Tim Savoy. “If anything changes over the summer with a special legislative session or a directive from the Texas Education Agency, we’d take another look at our plans.”

Georgetown and Eanes ISD also said they were no longer considering remote learning for students. Pflugerville ISD’s communication specialist Tamara Spence said a final decision would come mid-July after continuing to communicate with TEA Commissioner Mike Morath’s office.

In the Austin Independent School District, the Chief of Schools said the option was briefly considered, but abandoned. District leaders decided any potential plan wouldn’t serve enough students to justify the cost. AISD is expected to pocket more than $ 200 million in federal stimulus dollars, but hasn’t said yet how it plans to allocate it.

“Our students are in desperate need of opportunities to learn and engage and we recognize that a lot of that good work is happening in the classroom, face-to-face,” AISD Chief of Schools Dr. Anthony Mays said. “We followed suit, along with several other districts in terms of reopening our campuses, to make sure our students have the learning opportunities that we know yield better results.”

Some Austin ISD teachers are not pleased with the perceived lack of collaboration with community stakeholders, particularly as it relates to large-scale decisions.

Bronwyn Merritt, a 5th grade teacher at Brentwood Elementary, sent a letter to Dr. Mays and Superintendent Dr. Stephanie Elizalde, asking the district to fight back against state mandates and restrictions. She implored the leaders to exert influence and be a leader in supporting teachers, staff and families.

“We do have a voice and value as a district and a lot of power and pull. We can be on the right side of history here,” Merritt wrote.

Merritt suggested the district seek collaboration, particularly with the teachers who are working in the classrooms daily. In particular, she’s worried about what the fall looks like with 100% in-person attendance, specifically at her Brentwood campus, where all students will be working in portables until the reimagined campus is finished construction in 2022.

“I would have liked to see more discussion around that move to 100% in-person instead of getting an email in the summer saying virtual was off the table,” Merritt said. “I just really want to know that there is a place for every parent, every teacher and every student at the table, with the people who are making these massive decisions that affect us all.”

School days to be made LONGER to help children catch up with lesson learning

A leaked presentation showed plans to extend the school week by an extra two-and-a-half hours in a bid to help students catch up with their studies. The proposal was put together by education czar Sir Kevan Collins, who will be leading the education recovery efforts.
The presentation, seen by the Times, estimates that each pupil will need to spend an extra 100 hours in the classroom a year from 2022 to make up for the time lost to the pandemic.

It also showed that five million of the most affected pupils in England will receive additional tutoring.

Some 500,000 teachers will receive more training in order to deliver the expected results.

It follows warnings from leading health expert suggesting the UK is in the early stages of a third Covid wave.

Professor Ravi Gupta from Cambridge University called on the Government to delay ending Covid restrictions in England on June 21.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “Of course the numbers of cases are relatively low at the moment – all waves start with low numbers of cases that grumble in the background and then become explosive.

“So the key here is that what we are seeing here is the signs of an early wave.”

Christina Pagel, a professor at University College London, made similar remarks and warned the UK should extend the lockdown measures for a further two months instead of reopening on June 21.

She said the UK “should wait a few more months to unlock fully” to ensure enough people have been fully vaccinated.

‘I Used to Like School’: An 11-Year-Old’s Struggle With Pandemic Learning

Remote learning — which these days Jordyn does for half the week — is clearly part of his struggle. His mother says she cannot afford Wi-Fi on her $ 12-an-hour salary as a security guard — a situation shared by many families in Mississippi, where about half of students do not have reliable broadband at home, the highest percentage of any state, according to a study by Common Sense Media.

But Jordyn’s story, which The New York Times documented over the course of a week in Clarksdale, is about much more than inadequate technology. It is also about the added disruption the pandemic has brought to one working-class family that was already struggling to make ends meet. And it underscores the limits of hybrid learning to reach those disengaged students.

“I used to like school,” he said softly. “Now I don’t even like it anymore because it’s too hard.”

Until the pandemic, Jordyn and his mother lived in Battle Creek, Mich., where he was known among his teachers as a bright but easily distracted student, one who was capable of soaring when he was engaged.

Shermell Hooper, his second-grade teacher, recalled having to stand over his desk before he would write his name at the top of the page. If she assigned a reading passage, she had to sit next to him to get him to read.

On the day of a nationwide standardized test, she said, Jordyn sat in front of his computer, humming to himself and spinning around in his chair. She thought he was goofing off — until the results came in.

When his mother came to pick him up, a school administrator was waiting for her, and she worried Jordyn had gotten into trouble. “That’s when they told me that he had gotten not just the best score in his class but the best score in the entire grade,” she said.

At a schoolwide assembly, Jordyn’s name was called, his classmates cheered and he received a new bike.

NOEL Clarke liked a tweet about “learning from your mistakes” – days before being accused of sexual misconduct by 20 women.

The Viewpoint and Kidulthood actor was stripped of his Bafta last night after it was alleged he sexually harassed, groped and bullied women.

Mr Clarke – who fiercely denies the claims – liked the tweet posted on April 1, which said: “Learn from your mistakes. That’s what they’re there for.”

The Guardian reports the allegations against the married actor relate to a period between 2004 and 2019.

He’s been accused of a range of acts, including sharing sexually explicit pictures and videos without consent.

The actor is currently appearing in ITV’s new drama series Viewpoint.

Mr Clarke had been made aware of the allegations before he appeared onstage at the Royal Albert Hall to collect his Bafta for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema on April 10.

The awards committee had also been alerted 13 days before the ceremony – but said it was provided with “no evidence” that would allow it to investigate.

Numerous women are reported to have broken their silence after the ceremony. They allege Mr Clarke is a serial abuser and uses his power to prey on and harass female colleagues.

Last night the awards committee suspended Mr Clarke’s Bafta.

Mr Clarke said in a statement to the Guardian: “In a 20-year career, I have put inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of my work and never had a complaint made against me.

“If anyone who has worked with me has ever felt uncomfortable or disrespected, I sincerely apologise.

“I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing and intend to defend myself against these false allegations.”

What films and TV series has Noel Clarke been in?

Noel Clarke is one of the UK’s best-known actors, although he’s also a screenwriter, director and comic book writer

He first rose to fame playing Mickey Smith in Dr Who between 2005 and 2010.

In 2006, he took on his break-out film role as Sam in Kidulthood. The movie was followed by 2008’s Adulthood and 2016’s Brotherhood, which he also wrote and directed.

He’s well-known for playing Aaron Bishop in Bulletproof, which he also writes and produces, and is currently starring in ITV drams Viewpoint.

Mr Clarke has starred in several films, including Centurion, Fast Girls, Star Trek: Into Darkness and SAS: Red Notice.

He’s the founder of Unstoppable Film and Television with friend and fellow actor Jason Maza.

He also holds a slew of awards for his performances, including the 2003 Laurence Olivier Award for Most Promising Performer and the 2009 Bafta Orange Rising Star award.

Through his lawyers, Clarke categorically denied every allegation that the publication put to him.

He allegedly accepts he once made inappropriate comments about one woman, for which he later apologised.

In a 29-page letter, his lawyers said he denies all of the other allegations.

Students exposed to COVID-19 during STAAR tests; districts push for in-person learning

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Anderson High School is wrestling with a spike in COVID-19 exposures after positive cases quadrupled during the week STAAR testing began.

The school has contacted some families, asking their children to remain quarantined after they were contact-traced back to the STAAR testing that occurred on campus last week. The district reports the positive cases are now isolated and did not originate in the classroom from the STAAR testing itself, but from outside extracurriculars.

PREVIOUS: Texas education commissioner defends in-person STAAR test. Who can skip it?

According to the Austin Independent School District COVID-19 dashboard on Monday, the number of positive cases at Anderson High jumped from three to 14. The number of new exposures on campus jumped from three to 94.

“I just have no words for what happened. This was the worst scenario and nightmare that we could have imagined. And we didn’t think it was going to happen to us, but it did,” said Nancy Thompson, whose ninth-grade daughter is one of the students now under mandatory quarantine.

Thompson said she has kept her daughter at home for the entire year but felt compelled to send her in to STAAR testing so she could finish her End-of-Course Assessments with the learning material still fresh in her mind.

“The odds were not in her favor. She was exposed to COVID during STAAR testing at Anderson High School,” Thompson said. “I have no words for what happened.”

Austin ISD officials wouldn’t respond when we asked about the exposures that occurred. We asked about the overall timeline and the preventative steps the district took to contain the virus once they found out there was a positive case. This story will be updated to reflect the response when it is received.

This comes as AISD and other school districts are encouraging families to bring their children back for in-person learning or risk losing state funding.

Last month, when the Texas Education Agency announced it would hold school districts harmless for drops in enrollment during the pandemic, most education advocates heralded the decision as a major win. But the TEA tied the promise to certain criteria:

  1. A school district’s average on-campus attendance participation rate during the sixth 6-weeks attendance reporting period is equal to or greater than 80% of all students educated; or
  2. A school district’s average on campus attendance participation rate during the sixth 6-weeks attendance reporting period is equal to or greater than the on-campus snapshot the district provided on a single day to the TEA in October.

In other words, to satisfy criteria 2 listed above, for the final 6-weeks of the school year, AISD must maintain a benchmark at or above 44% on-campus attendance or risk losing millions in state funding. The percentage is derived from the single day “snapshot” the district provided to the TEA in October.

As such, school administrators across Central Texas are encouraging families to bring their students in for the final weeks of the school year.

“There’s a lot of exciting activities that will take place these last six weeks and we’re eager to welcome your child back to campus. We’ve missed them!” AISD Superintendent Dr. Stephanie Elizalde wrote to families. “We’ve all done a lot of work to get to this point, and we want to encourage you to send your students back to school so they can enjoy the learning opportunities that happen on campus every day.”

At the San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District, almost every student was allowed on campus on Monday for in-person learning; it’s the first time since the beginning of the pandemic.

Nearly all San Marcos CISD students back in classrooms Monday

Pflugerville ISD administrators changed their policy: beginning Friday, all families can choose to switch their child to in-person learning at any time. Previously, you would have to wait for the grading period to end.

School officials say CDC guidelines are being closely met in order to keep kids safe.

“The data shows us that the positivity rate is much lower inside our schools than in the Austin area at large. We’ve also worked to make vaccines available to every single Austin ISD teacher and staff member,” Dr. Elizalde wrote. “The CDC says classroom instruction, coupled with protocols such as masks and social distancing, is safe.”

Does It Hurt Children to Measure Pandemic Learning Loss?

Others go further, arguing that regardless of what terminology is used, standardized testing to measure the impact of the pandemic is unnecessary or even actively harmful. Voices as prominent as the former New York City schools chancellor, Richard Carranza[1], and the Massachusetts Teachers Association[2], the state’s largest educators’ union, have encouraged parents to opt their children out of state tests during the pandemic. “We do not want to impose additional trauma on students that have already been traumatized,” Mr. Carranza said.

This week, the nation’s largest school system, in New York City, announced that parents would have to opt their children in[3] to state standardized testing, which could lead to a smaller group of students taking the exams, and results that will be difficult to interpret.

Jesse Hagopian[4], a Seattle high school teacher and writer, said testing to measure the impact of the pandemic misses what students have learned outside of physical classrooms during a year of overlapping crises in health, politics and police violence.

“They are learning about how our society works, how racism is used to divide,” he said. “They are learning about the failure of government to respond to the pandemic.”

Mr. Hagopian said he believed that “learning loss” research was being used to “prop up the multi-billion-dollar industry of standardized testing” and “rush educators back into classrooms before it’s safe to do so.”

Some of the recent research has been conducted by outfits that create and license academic assessments, but other research has been led by independent scholars. Both types of studies show some students are struggling.

A preliminary national study of 98,000 students from Policy Analysis for California Education[5], an independent group with ties to several large universities, found that as of late fall, second graders were 26 percent behind where they would have been, absent the pandemic, in their ability to read aloud accurately and quickly. Third graders were 33 percent behind.

Fed Up With Remote Learning, Governors Make a Push to Reopen Schools

“Every day is an eternity for a young person,” Mr. Inslee, a Democrat, said. “We just could not wait any further.”

In the weeks since most of the governors acted, nationwide cases have started to rise again, which could complicate the effort to get children back in school. Many school staff members have already been offered vaccines, which has reduced the resistance from teachers’ unions to reopening and, provided staff vaccination rates are high, will limit the opportunities for the virus to spread in schools.

Even so, in areas where cases are increasing sharply, like Michigan[1], some schools have had to revert to remote learning[2] temporarily because so many students were in quarantine.

But for the time being, at least, the moves by these governors have yielded significant results.

In Ohio, nearly half of all students were in districts that were fully remote at the beginning of 2021. By March 1, that number was down to 4 percent, and it has shrunk further in the weeks since.

In Washington, before Mr. Inslee issued his proclamation, the state’s largest district, Seattle Public Schools, was locked in a standoff with its teachers’ union over a reopening plan. Days after Mr. Inslee announced he would require districts to bring students back at least part time, the two sides reached an agreement for all preschool and elementary school students and some older students with disabilities to return by April 5.

And in Massachusetts, Mr. Baker’s move has spurred a sea change, with dozens of districts bringing students back to school for the first time since the pandemic began, and hundreds shifting from part-time to full-time schedules.

“It’s worked exceedingly well,” Mr. DeWine, a Republican, said of his decision to offer vaccines to Ohio districts that pledged to reopen. “We’ve got these kids back in school.”

Man Utd shortlist former Liverpool transfer target after learning £68m Jules Kounde price

The Dutch U21 international is one of a number of names mentioned, with Real Madrid ace Raphael Varane and Pau Torres of Villereal also touted for moves.

Meanwhile, it has been claimed that Eduardo Camavinga that he will reconsider joining Real Madrid if they decide to sack under-fire manager Zinedine Zidane.

AS report that giving the Frenchman the boot will throw Camavinga’s plans in the air and therefore is keeping his options open about a move to English football, potentially with United.

The player’s agent, London-based Jonathan Barnett has labelled his client the ‘best young player in the world’ and suggested that while deals may be harder this summer, he still expects to break records.

Parler claims it alerted FBI to threats before Capitol riot

Social media platform Parler revealed that it flagged concerning material for the FBI ahead of the January 6 U.S. Capitol riot. Meanwhile, a leading senator expressed serious concerns around Facebook’s handling of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation on both Facebook and Instagram, and new data shows schools are increasingly moving back into in-person learning.

PARLER WRINKLE: Parler flagged material posted on its platform to the FBI in the run-up to the violent insurrection at the Capitol in January, the conservative social media network claimed in a letter to a lawmaker.

In the letter dated Thursday to House Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn MaloneyCarolyn MaloneyPelosi, White House recognize Equal Pay Day Robinhood confidentially files for IPO Political fireworks fuel DC statehood hearing MORE[6][7][8][9][10][5] (D-N.Y.), lawyers for the platform said that the company referred violent content to the agency more than 50 times.

The lawyers noted that some of those flagged posts included threats specific to the Capitol, where five people died during an attempt to stop Congress from verifying President BidenJoe BidenThe Hill’s Morning Report – Biden shifts on filibuster GOP looks to squeeze Biden, Democrats on border Sanders creates new headache for Biden on taxes MORE[12][13][14][15][16][11]’s Electoral College win.

“Far from being the far-right instigator and rogue company that Big Tech has portrayed Parler to be, the facts conclusively demonstrate that Parler has been a responsible and law-abiding company focused on ensuring that only free and lawful speech exists on its platform,” the lawyers wrote.

The letter includes a screenshot of what appears to be an email correspondence between Parler and the FBI.

A spokesperson for the FBI declined to comment.

Parler, which has pitched itself as a free speech alternative platform to Facebook and Twitter, has been criticized for being rife with content about storming Congress before Jan. 6.


Shortly after the attack, it was blocked from the Apple and Google app stores and subsequently dropped by Amazon Web Services, functionally taking the service offline.

The platform announced last month that it would be relaunching.

MISINFORMATION CONCERNS ABOUND: Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Mark Warner[18] (D-Va.) on Friday pressed Facebook to do more to combat the spread of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation on both its platform and Instagram.

In a letter[19] to Facebook CEO Mark ZuckerbergMark Elliot ZuckerbergThe Hill’s Morning Report – Biden shifts on filibuster Hillicon Valley: Another Big Tech hearing | Cyber Command flexes operations | Trump’s social media site in the works Lawmakers vent frustration in first hearing with tech CEOs since Capitol riot MORE[21][22][23][24][25][20], Warner detailed his concerns that the social media giant is not doing enough to get a handle on the increasing tide of misleading information around the safety of the vaccines.

“Anti-vaccination groups and other health conspiracy groups have long utilized – and been enabled by – Facebook’s platforms to disseminate misinformation,” Warner wrote. “Studies show a rapid increase in the spread of health misinformation online since the start of the pandemic.”

The letter was sent the day after Zuckerberg testified[26] before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on the topic of misinformation on Facebook, particularly around COVID-19 and the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot.

Zuckerberg detailed Facebook’s efforts to combat coronavirus vaccine misinformation on both Facebook and Instagram in his prepared testimony, noting that “we have made fighting misinformation and providing people with authoritative information a priority for the company.”

SCHOOL’S BACK (SORT OF): About a third of school districts across the nation have resumed in-person learning, while just 1 in 10 school districts continue teaching students entirely remotely, according to a new tracker launched to measure the way local schools adapt to the coronavirus pandemic.

The data shows that school districts across the South are the most likely to have sent children back to school already, while California has the highest concentration of districts that remain remote.

But the lack of a clear national strategy for reopening schools, a problem that is only beginning to be addressed as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention roll out new recommendations for distancing, air circulation and sanitation requirements, has kept most school districts in some kind of hybrid learning environment.

The data, maintained by Return to Learn, a joint project of the American Enterprise Institute and the College Crisis Initiative at Davidson College, shows 54 percent of school districts still operating school in some kind of hybrid model, in which kids attend class in person some days and virtually on others.[28]
