We are as excited as you are to begin our 2020-21 school year. As we launch the year with Midland ISD Online Academy or At-Home Instruction (4 weeks), we are ready to meet the needs of our students and their families. What follows is important information to ensure students and parents understand what school will look like and feel like.
Students enrolled in the Midland ISD Online Academy will begin the school year August 19 along with all other campus students engaged in At-Home Instruction. Students will engage in friendly and accelerated learning each day. Each student will log into their Google Classroom and be welcomed by a campus teacher(s). Each teacher takes daily attendance by seeing your child log on, whether the schedule is synchronous (at the scheduled class time) or asynchronous (at a different time later in the day).
