Smoke Signal

January 11, 2021


Throughout this year, we have stressed the importance of our Special Population students on our campus. Special Education, ESL and Section 504 students also deserve our complete attention when it comes to their progress or lack of progress in the classroom. At this point in the year, every teacher who has Special Education, ESL or Section 504 students in their classrooms should know if these students are on track to pass the STAAR and STAAR EOC.

If these students have not been successful in your classroom, it is CRITICAL that you review their classroom accommodation plans and ask the appropriate administrator if you are unsure of what services they should be receiving. Please remember that "Excellence For ALL" is for all students on our campus!

Have a great week and as always... It's a Great Day to be a Chieftain!

Crosbyton CISD Virtual Learning Guidelines

The virtual learning model is different from the remote learning in the spring. The virtual model will be much more rigorous, and daily attendance will be required. Crosbyton CISD will use Google Classroom as our virtual learning platform. Students will be required to have a reliable internet connect, and a device capable of running the Google Classroom application.

Key aspects of the virtual learning model include:

  • Students will be expected to follow the full instructional day plan according to the provided schedule. Secondary students will complete at least 240 minutes per day.
  • Content learning and activities will be planned by the classroom teacher to make sure each student receives their full instructional minutes.
  • Virtual Learning model may have a separate instructional design, but will use the same scope and sequence as Face-to-Face learning.
  • The virtual learning assignments may look different, but they will cover the same content and skills as on-campus instruction.
  • Learning opportunities will be personalized to meet individual needs of students that receive specialized services.

Students that choose to participate in virtual learning will be required to remain in virtual learning until the end of the grading period, and they waive participation and attendance in extracurricular activities. Certain elective courses will require attendance in face-to-face instruction. If a student chooses virtual learning, and is enrolled in one of these courses, the student will have to change their schedule.
