Snyder ISD to Offer Only In-Person Learning for the 2021-2022 School Year

Legislation that would have provided funding for virtual learning did not pass in the most recent session of the Texas Legislature. Therefore, based on the information in hand today Snyder ISD will only offer in-person learning options for the 2021-2022 school year.  

“We were watching the legislature closely,” stated Dr. Eddie Bland, Superintendent of Schools for Snyder ISD.  “During the height of the pandemic, funding for virtual learning provided flexibility for those who were unable to or uncomfortable attending classes in person.”  

At the end of the 2020-2021 school year, most students had returned to in-person classes, with only 5.26% of students attending school virtually.

“We experienced a dramatic decrease in COVID-19 cases once vaccines became readily available,” stated Bland.  “Based on what we’ve learned and current trends, we plan to reopen safely in the fall.  With that said, we also understand this could change at any time based on a significant surge in COVID-19 positive cases and governmental mandates.”
