Health and Safety Priority

At ResponsiveEd, we are ready to meet the needs of students through on-campus instruction during the 2022-2023 school year. We employ full-time and part-time staff to ensure health and safety protocols are in place for our students, staff, and visitors. As we enter the 2022-2023 school year, a number of enhanced health and safety protocols have been implemented to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

ResponsiveEd continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and we receive regular updates, guidance, and/or directives from Texas Governor Greg Abbott; Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath; and other local, state, and federal agencies regarding response, prevention, and mitigation efforts. This guidance has evolved and will continue to evolve based on COVID-19 conditions across the state and within the communities we serve.

As COVID-19 data changes, federal, state, and local guidance and/or directives may change in response to the data. ResponsiveEd will stay informed of these changes and will adjust policies and procedures to reflect the current guidance and/or directives. ResponsiveEd has developed these operational guidelines in consultation with the following organizations:

This document is subject to change as guidance and/or directives are provided by government officials and/or as COVID-19 conditions change.

ResponsiveEd has worked collaboratively to establish guidelines that provide a safe learning environment for students and staff as we enter the 2022-23 school year. The ResponsiveEd COVID-19 Response Team was formed to develop a comprehensive response plan for daily campus operations that utilize strategies to mitigate respiratory illnesses such as  COVID-19 and promote a healthy and safe environment for all ResponsiveEd students, staff, and visitors.

Remote Learning Instruction

ResponsiveEd will offer on-campus during the 2022-23 school year. Remote Learning is available in grades 9-12 through iSchool Virtual Academy.
