Students can use remote conferencing (RC) to help them stay up to date with learning when out of school for medical reasons.

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has allowed districts to use “remote conferencing” as a tool for eligible students absent from school to participate in learning from home for up to 20 school days during the academic year. Remote Conferencing allows students the opportunity to stay up-to-date with their classwork while medically unable to attend school.

For extra information, see General Remote Conferencing FAQs from TEA.

Who is eligible?

Students in prekindergarten through grade 12 are eligible if any one of the following applies:

  • A temporary medical condition documented by a physician licensed in the U.S. that notes a student must remain confined to the home or hospital
  • Tested positive for a communicable condition, such as COVID-19
  • Been identified as having been in close contact with COVID-19

Parents can contact their student's home campus if they believe their child is eligible. Remote conferencing administrators and campus staff may also reach out to students who qualify for the program, but did not request this service.

How will instruction be delivered?

Long-term substitutes will provide synchronous instruction from Canvas content created by our Teaching and Learning Development Department. The teacher of record will grade assignments and provide feedback.
