MISD Return to In-Person Learning 2022-2023

Districts receiving ESSER funding must provide a plan for returning to in-person learning.  MISD is fortunate to have been able to continue in-person learning from the 2021-2022 school year.  Student health has been a priority while we have also focused on maintaining high academic standards. 

Attendance

We know that consistent, in-person attendance equates to the best learning outcomes for our students. During COVID, attendance rates across the state and nation dipped. As we shift our mindsets back to what we hope is a more normal school year with “pre-pandemic” operations, we will be laser-focused on encouraging excellent attendance in 2022-23.

Please know that we will never encourage students to attend school when they are sick. However, this year we must make a concerted effort to ask parents to prioritize outstanding student attendance, scheduling family vacations and doctor appointments outside of school hours.

MISD Health Protocols

The following health protocols are beneficial for preventing any infectious disease, and individuals should stay home if experiencing signs of illness. We ask that all individuals who will be present at a district facility to please exercise personal responsibility as it relates to self-screening, personal health and ensuring the health of those around you. If you or your child is sick with symptoms such as fever equal or over 100.0 degrees, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, or other symptoms indicative of infectious disease, please do not attend school or school events.  

For an individual who tests positive for COVID-19, the CDC recommends the individual stays home for at least five days from when the symptoms first appeared, and no fever within 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications, and other symptoms are improving. If you need to report a positive case for a Montgomery ISD employee or student, that information may be reported on the COVID Reporting Form.This information will be used to report to the local health department. 

Additional leave days for employees are no longer available this school year.  The employee may use their state and local leave if they are absent for any reason, including absences due to COVID-19. 

Students who have a documented case of COVID-19 may receive an excused absence. However, excused absences accumulate along with unexcused absences and may impact a student's ability to earn credit for a course if excessive absences are documented in a semester.  

COVID Resources

During the 2021-2022 school year, we were able to provide opportunities for rapid testing at the district office. With testing inventory readily available at pharmacies and other local stores such as CVS and Walgreen's, there is no longer a need to continue this service. Montgomery County Public Health District has a list of locations providing testing and vaccines on the MCPHD website.  

Focus on Academic Progress 

Academically, our test scores from last year indicate that our students continue to out-perform the state in every category measured under state accountability. While we know that our students are much more than the results of state testing, we are proud that students in Montgomery ISD did not experience the “COVID slide” that impacted schools across the state and nation. This is a true testament to an outstanding collective effort from students, our amazing teachers, and support from our families. These academic achievements provide an excellent foundation for our district on our journey to Be Premier. Students needing acceleration or additional academic support will receive educational interventions through our district tiered-support systems and additional HB 4545 tutoring.
