School Closure FAQs for Current Employees

Frequently Asked Questions

Grading

How will Grade Point Averages (GPA) be calculated, particularly for determining Rank in Class (RIC), Valedictorian, Salutatorian, and Top 10%?
Updated on 4/17/20 

Grades earned through the end of the first semester, which ended on December 19, 2019, will solely be used to determine GPA and RIC. This approach mirrors what most districts around the state have adopted and provides a fair comparison for students with their peers.

How will teachers determine proficiency of course content for second-semester courses?
Students were in the fifth six-week grading period when schools closed. Teachers will determine proficiency based on completed assignments in the fifth six-week grading period, grades from the fourth six-week grading period (which have already been recorded in Home Access Center), and at-home learning experiences provided by teachers beginning Monday, April 6, 2020. Transcripts will reflect either a P (Passing-Demonstration of Proficiency) or I (Incomplete).

What about work that was not yet completed prior to Spring Break?
Any assignments still outstanding as of Friday, March 13, 2020, may still be collected and assessed by teachers on a pass/fail basis. 

What if my student had a failing grade in a previous six-week grading period?
Students will be provided an opportunity to improve any failing six-weeks average from this school year up to a score of 70. 

What if my student failed the first semester of a year-long course?
Students must receive at least a 70 in the first semester and a P in the second semester to receive full credit. As noted above, there will be opportunities provided to increase a first-semester grade. As in regular school years, each semester can stand alone as a 0.5 credit.

How will middle school grades be calculated?|Middle school grade calculation will mirror the high school approach. Teachers will determine proficiency for the remainder of the year based on completed assignments in the fifth six-week grading period, grades from the fourth six-week grading period (which have already been recorded in Home Access Center), and at-home learning experiences provided by teachers beginning Monday, April 6, 2020. Report cards will reflect either a P (Passing-Demonstration of Proficiency) or I (Incomplete).

Students will also be provided an opportunity to improve any failing six-week average from this school year up to a score of 70. 

Additionally, during the at-home learning experience, teachers will use collected student work samples and responses to teacher feedback provided to determine “Pass” “Fail” or “Incomplete” weekly. This data will influence promotion decisions by a campus committee.

How will grades be calculated for elementary students in grades 3-5?
Elementary schools operate on a nine-week grading period calendar, and students had completed the first week of the fourth and final nine-week grading period as Spring Break began. For the final nine-week grading period, students will be given either a P (Passed-Demonstrated Proficiency) or I (Incomplete.) Teachers will use student work samples and student responses to teacher feedback to make their determinations. 

How will schools determine grade promotion in grades 3-5?
Promotion will be determined based on grades in the first three quarters (nine-week grading periods) of the 2019-2020 school year. Students must have earned an overall average of 70 in all subject areas and a grade of 70 or above in both math and language arts and either social studies or science. Additionally, during the at-home Learning experience, teachers will use collected student work samples and responses to teacher feedback provided to determine “Pass” “Fail” or “Incomplete” weekly. This data will influence promotion decisions by a campus committee.

How will my pre-kindergarten through second grade student be assessed?
The last report card was created just before spring break, but most schools did not get them sent home before the school closure. We are working on a solution to get those available to you electronically. For the last quarter of school, which is mostly during this school closure, you will receive a progress report via email for your child the week of May 20th. This progress report will share student strengths, areas for growth, and ideas for supporting your child.

How will I know if my student in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade is on track with the curriculum from now until the end of the year?
Teachers will make every effort to communicate with parents on student progress and to ensure their experience with at-home learning is positive, effective and enriching. 

The RRISD curriculum will be adjusted so any content that was supposed to be taught during the school closure will be taught in your child’s next grade level.

More questions?
If you still have questions about your student’s grades. Please contact your campus administration.

Counseling and Behavioral Health

How can students and parents communicate with counselors? 
Counselors will be available for students to communicate via email. Students are encouraged to email their counselor if they have questions or concerns. Counselors may also reach out to students and parents with helpful information. Counselors will share additional resources and information with students based on their individual needs and work with them to address their respective situations. 

Counselors are available for phone calls with parents who would like to speak with a counselor to share student concerns or information. If a parent is interested in scheduling a phone call, they can email their child’s counselor to set up a time. Additional information is available on each campus website and the Counseling Services Department website.

If a student is experiencing a crisis and is in immediate danger, please call 9-1-1. If the student is not in immediate danger, parents should contact their school counselor for resources and additional support.  

If my student was receiving therapy on campus from Bluebonnet Trails Community Services (BTCS) before the school closure, can my student continue receiving this service? 
Round Rock ISD partners with Bluebonnet Trails Community Services (BTCS) to provide therapy on campus during the school year. As a result of school closures, BTCS has moved services to a telehealth platform. Any student who was previously seeing a therapist from BTCS on their campus has the option to continue to see their therapist via telehealth services. For more information, parents may contact their school counselor.

Is Bluebonnet Trails Community Services accepting new students for therapy? 
Bluebonnet Trails Community Services (BTCS) is continuing to accept student referrals for therapy from school counselors. If a parent believes that their student may benefit from this service, they may contact their school counselor to discuss their concerns and desire for a referral. Counselors will then work with parents to determine the best options for student support.

Instruction

Can Round Rock ISD end the school year early?
State law requires school districts to complete the school year, though we recognize the current learning environment is far from ideal for most. We also believe in maintaining some level of academic engagement and connection with teachers during the school year is important and valuable for students. The vast majority of districts across the country are continuing with some version of virtual learning or engagement during the traditional school calendar.

The last day of school in Round Rock ISD is May 21.

What does at-home instruction look like for students?
Launched on April 6, students and teachers are continuing instruction and learning through the use of tools such as Google Classrooms and the Round Rock ISD email system to receive and submit assignments and for teachers to provide feedback to students in a timely manner. Teachers also have the ability to send recorded messages or lessons to students, which allows them to view and repeat as needed in the timeframe that works best for their individual needs.

Will at-home learning cover all of the curriculum for the current school year?
Currently, the Teaching and Learning Department is updating the scope and sequence of at-home learning, which will include adding some, but not all, of the standards that would be introduced during this portion of the school year. We recognize that this learning environment is not conducive to the depth and complexity of understanding we seek for our students. In response to that concern, the Teaching and Learning Department is also redesigning the 2020-2021 curriculum scope and sequence to address potential gaps in instruction from Spring 2020. 


Do students and teachers have the opportunity to communicate through video chat?
Starting on April 27, teachers will begin using Google Meet to host optional video check-ins with groups of students. The focus of the video check-ins will be to provide students with encouragement, feedback, and support and answer questions regarding assignments rather than instruction. 

Video check-ins are intended to be held for groups of students. Any special circumstances requiring one-on-one meetings between a teacher and student will be vetted through the campus principal and require parent approval. 

Why did video chat between students and teachers not start earlier?
Throughout school closures, our first priority has been the health, safety and welfare of both our students and staff. When Gov. Greg Abbott announced schools would remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, we accelerated preparation of our next phase of at-home learning to include video chat. 


Although some districts moved more quickly to using this tool, we wanted to ensure that we were thoughtful and deliberate, taking time to vet platforms, establish policies to protect both staff and students, and to do everything in our power to ensure all of our students have access to devices and Internet service so that everyone has the tools they need. To do anything less would have risked the quality and consistency of implementation that our students deserve.

Why was an asynchronous approach to at-home learning selected?
This option provides maximum flexibility and takes into consideration accessibility and feasibility for students and educators. This is also the primary approach of most colleges and universities for online instruction. 

Synchronous instruction is teacher-student interaction that occurs in real time via video conferencing and requires all students to follow a consistent daily schedule from their homes. Until the District can assure that we are equipped to safely utilize real-time video conferencing and provide access to video-conferencing in the homes of all of our students, we will continue to move forward with an asynchronous approach.

How can parents best support students with at-home learning?
Our at-home learning approach is designed to allow students and parents the flexibility to complete and support assignments throughout the entire week at a schedule that works best for them. If feeling overwhelmed with the week’s assignments, parents and students are encouraged to space out work throughout the week and complete based on a schedule that fits their individual needs. Helpful resources and information can be found on the Round Rock ISD at-home learning guide

What is being done to help ensure that students are not overwhelmed?
Our curriculum design teams are constantly working to continue to implement an at-home learning approach that moves learning forward while avoiding over burdening families and students.

If parents feel that modifications to assignments are needed to address their student’s needs, they are encouraged to contact their teacher.

Need help navigating the Home Learning Hub? See our how-to-use Home Learning guide.

Do we have updates on EOC, STAAR, graduation requirements, TELPAS, etc.?
The Governor waived state law and requested a waiver from the United States Department of Education (USDE) for all testing requirements for this year. STAAR will not be administered by Texas Education Agency (TEA) this year. We will receive guidance from TEA for grade level promotion and other issues related to this assessment decision (e.g. graduating seniors this year, and in future years). TEA will also be extending the TELPAS window for testing and processing and will ask for a waiver from the USDE for local determinations to be used to guide English Language determinations this year. The TEA communicated to expect more flexibility on TELPAS as it continues to review the situation.

What do I do if my student does not have access to a laptop?
If your student does not have access to a laptop, please contact their campus administration. Printed take-home packets of materials are also available at our curbside breakfast and lunch distribution sites for students who would prefer paper copies or who have limited access to devices or the Internet. 

If my student received a laptop and/or wifi hotspot, will they need to return them in the summer?
Students will be able to keep Chromebooks and internet hotspots that were checked out this school year during the summer. Students will keep their devices to support instructional continuity and access to educational resources and bring them to their campuses once schools are safely reopened. 

If students are no longer in need of a Chromebook or internet hotspot to continue instruction, they are encouraged to contact their campus administration.

What do I do if my student has technical issues with the laptop?

You can contact the technology help desk at 512-464-5167 or can email support@roundrockisd.org with your contact info and a description of the issue.

What do I do if my student does not have access to the Internet?
If your student does not have access to the internet, please contact their campus administration. Also, a few Internet Service Providers are offering free, trial internet to homes that may not have access:

  • Comcast is offering: Sixty (60) days of free Internet Essentials service, which is normally available to all qualified low-income households for $9.95/month. For new customers, applicants can simply visit www.internetessentials.com (website includes written and video chat customer service options) or by calling 1-855-846-8376 (English) or 1-855-765-6995 (Spanish). 
  • Spectrum is offering: Sixty (60) days free broadband and Wi-Fi access for households with K-12 and/or college students who don’t already have a Spectrum broadband subscription. No installation fees for new households. Enroll by calling 1-844-488-8395.
  • Suddenlink (operated by Altice Advantage) is offering: Sixty (60) days of free internet to any household in its service area that has a K-12 and/or college student. Call 888-633-0030 or learn more at AlticeAdvantageInternet.com.

Will printed copies of material be available?
Printed take-home packets of materials are also available at our curbside breakfast and lunch distribution sites for students who would prefer paper copies or who have limited access to devices or the Internet.

 

Summer Instruction

What is the Instructional Continuity: Summer Edition program?

 Available on June 1, the Instructional Continuity: Summer Edition program integrates Texas Education Agency-created At-Home Learning packets with Round Rock ISD instructional videos to support instructional continuity during the Summer. Members of the Round Rock ISD team will also be providing support at scheduled times throughout the Summer to answer questions and provide clarification as students and caretakers engage with the learning. Participation is optional. 

 More information and resources can be found on the Instructional Continuity: Summer Edition program website.

Is the Instructional Continuity: Summer Edition program mandatory for students? 

No. The Summer Instructional Continuity program is optional and intended to provide instructional resources to help students stay engaged in learning over the summer, whether they choose to review concepts covered over the 2019-2020 school year or look ahead to the next school year’s course work.

Is the Instructional Continuity: Summer Edition program intended for students who failed subjects and/or need to make up credit?

No. Campuses will contact parents directly if students need to participate in Summer Learning to support an identified academic need. Those courses will be offered virtually and will include real-time videoconferencing with a teacher in a small group format.

How is this program different from Summer Learning?

The Instructional Continuity: Summer Edition program is an optional program where students and parents can choose to participate. Summer Learning is designed for students who qualify or meet specific criteria determined by the district and will be invited by their campus to participate.

Special Education

What is happening with evaluations for dyslexia and/or special education that were begun before school closure?
Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our students and staff. Any evaluations for which the in-person testing piece had previously been completed will be finalized and the report shared with parents. ARD meetings will then be scheduled and held to review the recommendations of the report. Any evaluation for which in-person components have not yet been completed has been delayed and those parents have been provided formal written notice. We look forward to the time when it is safe to resume in-person testing.

How is the district documenting special education services during this time period?
A Distance Learning Document Amendment (DLDA) has been developed and shared with parents of each student eligible for special education. The DLDA does not make changes to a student’s services, but documents how the District is implementing those services through distance learning. In addition, parents may request an ARD meeting at any time. ARDs are currently being held via a live video conferencing platform.

How will progress monitoring be completed for this time period?
Round Rock ISD has asked each special education teacher and service provider to make a good faith effort to progress monitor.

How will decisions be made regarding compensatory services which may be needed as a result of COVID-19 school closure?
TEA is developing guidelines for decision making around compensatory education. We anticipate those decisions will be made on an individualized basis through the ARD process after on-campus schooling resumes.

Does the district plan to offer extended year services?
For summer 2020, the District is providing Extended School Year services through distance learning for those students whose ARD committees have previously documented regression. RRISD will also be offering 8 weeks of online learning/extension of learning developed by TEA and available to all students.

Senior Information

How will the Class of 2020 be recognized? Will commencement ceremonies be rescheduled?

Round Rock ISD will honor the Class of 2020 with virtual graduation ceremonies, which are scheduled to premiere online June 12 at 7 p.m. 48 to 24 hours before the event, students will be emailed a link directly from Stage Clip that they can use to watch the ceremony. Students may also share this link with family and friends. Virtual graduation will also be available to view on each campus-specific graduation website. To prepare for virtual graduation, seniors will receive directions from Herff Jones on how to submit their information for the virtual ceremony. Campuses will be following up with students.

There will also be commencement websites that feature commencement speeches, photos, and the names of our graduating Class of 2020 for each campus. 

Round Rock ISD  is also working with the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park to hold the dates of August 6, 7 and 8 for a potential in-person graduation ceremony, if environmental circumstances and direction from local governments on large gatherings allow.  If it’s safe to do so, schools that hold their commencement ceremonies at the Round Rock ISD Performing Arts Center will also be rescheduled for a date later this summer. 

Will seniors receive their diplomas on time? 

At this time, seniors who complete their coursework as required for graduation are expected to receive their diplomas on time. 

When will students receive their cap and gown and graduation announcements? 

Seniors will be contacted soon by Herff Jones with dates in early May for distribution of caps, gowns and graduation announcements. High school campuses will also post information on cap, gown and announcement pick-up on their websites. 

Are seniors able to request and receive transcripts? 

To request an official transcript, please email your campus registrar. Unofficial transcripts can be accessed through Home Access Center.

In anticipation of these days, families will be provided with meals for Friday and the weekend on May 21.

Does my child need to be present to receive a meal?

As a result of a waiver approved by the U.S Department of Agriculture, children are no longer required to be present to receive a meal. However, as stated by the Texas Department of Agriculture, parents or guardians must provide proof for each child that qualifies for the meal service during each visit as Districts are required to verify the number. Acceptable methods of proof include an official letter or email from the school confirming the child’s enrollment, individual student report cards, attendance records from the parent portal of the school’s website, birth certificate, or student ID cards. If parents or guardians are unable to provide documentation, the child must be present to receive a meal.

Will you run out of meals?
If a food distribution location runs out of meals, we extend service time to prepare, pack, and distribute more meals. 

Can I volunteer to hand out meals?
The Round Rock ISD community is truly the best – the outpouring of volunteerism is remarkable. Meals can only be prepared and handed out by certified food handlers. Our food service staff are all certified food handlers and are eager to serve their students regardless if it’s in the cafeteria or curbside.

Can buses be used to deliver meals?
We think it’s a great idea too. Unfortunately, buses aren’t equipped with the correct climate controls to keep food temperatures safe for serving. We follow the Williamson County Public Health Department’s food safety guidelines and requirements.

Student/Parent Information

How do I register my child?
To register your student, please review and complete the process outlined on the Round Rock ISD registration website. Once parents or guardians submit their online registration form, they will receive a secure email from their campus registrar within three business days. Please reply and upload/attach the required documents related to proof of residence to the email to begin the registration process. Once campuses are reopened, parents or guardians will be asked to bring in printed copies of the documents. 

For additional questions, please email your campus registrar.

Are students able to request and receive transcripts?
To request an official transcript, please email your campus registrar. Unofficial transcripts can be accessed through Home Access Center.

Will families be able to pick up student belongings and medications from campuses? 

Campus principals will be coordinating times for pick up of student personal belongings and medications. Once solidified, respective times and dates for pick up will be communicated with families. Depending on scheduling, pick up for personal belongings and medication may occur at different times.

Preventive Actions

What are we currently doing to keep students, staff and the community safe?
Our District’s efforts to keep our students healthy are supported by our Director of Health Services Elaine Douville whose work includes collaborating with campuses and working daily with campus nurses to ensure our District’s policies and procedures, which remain in line with those provided by both the Travis and Williamson County Health Departments as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are followed.

What are we doing to keep campuses, facilities and buses safe and clean?
Our Operations Department has deployed additional resources to ensure campuses are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected each day and takes particular care to clean and disinfect following events at schools and facilities that draw large crowds and are open to the public at large. To clean our campuses, facilities, and buses, Round Rock ISD uses RAZOR, an antimicrobial, to fog campuses and are currently fogging campuses at this time. We also use Quat 256 daily for high traffic areas, including desks, water fountains, cafeteria tables, restrooms, surface areas, and nurses’ areas. Quat 256 is a hospital-grade disinfectant and is EPA registered.

Proper and consistent hand washing is essential. Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. Use a paper towel to turn off the faucet if it is not automatic. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 % alcohol; apply to the palm of one hand; rub hands together covering all surfaces until dry.

Health Tips

There are also everyday steps that can be taken by us all to help minimize the spread of illness. These steps and more information can be found on the Round Rock ISD Health Services website and the Center for Disease Control website. Important actions include:

  • Cover your nose and mouth with the crook of your elbow or upper arm when you cough or sneeze. This will block the spread of droplets from your mouth or nose that could contain the flu virus.
  • Proper and consistent hand washing is essential. Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. Use a paper towel to turn off the faucet if it is not automatic. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer; apply to the palm of one hand; rub hands together covering all surfaces until dry.
  • Hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol will be available if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth as germs spread this way.
  • Avoid sharing objects. If an activity requires the passing around of an object, be sure to wash hands afterwards.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you or your child gets sick with a respiratory illness, like flu, limit contact with others as much as possible to help prevent spreading the illness. Stay home (or keep your child home) for at least 24 hours after fever is gone except to seek medical care. Fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.
