Schedule Changes Announced for Secondary Students

Victoria ISD is committed to offering high quality remote and face-to-face learning for all students. As a result, secondary teachers are planning for and preparing two classrooms with the same amount of time with which to work. By moving to a 4 ½ day instructional schedule, teachers will have a few additional hours every week to plan and prepare engaging and rigorous lessons for all of their students, both remote and face-to-face. We believe with this additional time, the quality of instruction will improve, leading to greater student success.

Campus support staff will be available to provide afternoon supervision and support for those students needing to stay at school for the entire day, which ends for 2:45 for high school students and 3:45 for middle school students. In addition, some certified staff members will be available during portions of the afternoon for subject-specific tutoring and support. Students will engage in activities based on campus facilities and needs and will include:
  • Academic support
  • Monitored time to make up missing assignments
  • Targeted online interventions
  • Character education/social emotional learning
  • Library Time
For high school, bus transportation will be provided at 11:30 and again and 2:45. For middle school, bus transportation will be provided at 12:30 and again at 3:45.
 
Rationale
In early October, Victoria ISD conducted a Thoughtexchange with parents and staff members to receive ideas and suggestions related to remote learning and instruction. Over 600 staff members and 277 parents and students participated and identified strategies including the 4 ½ day instructional week in order to support teachers in improving learning outcomes for all students, both face to face and remote. In addition, the district has been working with a Resilient School Support Program (RSSP) coach through the Texas Education Agency to improve the quality of remote learning.
