TEA announces Rio Grande Valley cities might be able to delay in-person classes longer
The Texas Education Agency announced that public schools in the Rio Grande Valley might have the option to delay in-person learning for another four weeks.
Ruben Cortez, a Texas state board of education member for district two said he’s spoken with the TEA commissioner along with sending letters to lawmakers in Austin asking for in-person learning to be delayed even longer.
“I left him a very lengthy message pleading with him to reconsider modifying the rules for at least — at nothing else — the more impacted regions,” Cortez said.
According to the Texas Education Agency’s new directives, there will be special consideration for cities with high COVID-19 case counts.
