Student Support & Counseling
There are many aspects of remote learning that we must consider and prepare for, including the mental health of ourselves and our students during this time. This page contains links to weekly zoom meetings with counselors across the state during school closures; resources for parents to keep kids informed and calm; and other resources for mental health during these uncertain times.
For additional student support resources not specific to COVID-19, please visit our School Counselor Handbook for Online Learning and Resources (SCHOLAR) homepage.

Impact of COVID-19 on Assessments and Accountability
under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act
TEA is working on a resource handout to help with this question. Their deadline is 4:30PM March 19, so it should be distributed soon. In regards to Industry Based Certifications (IBC’s), they are not tied into one particular course, but are incorporated in with an aligned program of study. They can be earned throughout the year, so they can be earned later this year (when we get back to normal) or even during the summer. Each IBC is different so some of the requirements can be met online or independently from the school setting.
As soon as we receive the resources from TEA we will be sure to share them.
