BLOOMING GROVE, TX — After a special meeting between Blooming Grove ISD Board of Trustees, it was decided that the school district will be stopping remote learning for students.

The decision to stop remote learning is set to take effect on October 16, 2020, for students who are remote learning. All students are to attend school on campus beginning Monday, October 19, 2020.

This year Blooming Grove ISD has been conducting three different learning models for students including on-campus learning, remote online learning and remote paper packet learning.

In a letter to parents, the School District says its remote learning model was proven to be the most unsuccessful for its students as more than 50% of the remote learning high school students are at risk of losing most of their credits this semester.

For families that do not wish to return to on-campus learning, you can apply for a transfer to a different district that offers remote learning, withdraw to homeschool or enroll in an online school.

Currently, there is one confirmed COVID-19 case and those affected will be required to return to remote learning for the duration of the quarantine.
