COVID Level for CISD
Caldwell ISD is currently on "Green" Level which means Caldwell ISD has less than 2% of known COVID cases amongst staff and student body.

General Information

Caldwell ISD will be following guidance from the Texas Department of Health, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and Texas Education Agency.

Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Rule, Caldwell ISD must exclude students from attending school in person who are actively sick with COVID-19 or who have received a positive test result for COVID -19.  Parents must ensure they do not send a child to school on campus if the child has COVID-19 symptoms or is test-confirmed with COVID-19 until the conditions of re-entry are met.

Students who have been in close contact to COVID -19 should stay at home for 10 days after exposure.  Students may be excused from attendance if the parent sends a note to the school nurse explaining the students close contact with a COVID-19 patient.  CISD campuses will attempt to deliver “remote instruction” through “remote conferencing.” The district will provide guidance to parents on a case-by-case basis, but will not provide synchronized instruction (real-time).

TEA allows “remote conferencing” only for students who meet one of these requirements:

  • temporary medical condition documented by a physician and the documentation must state the student is to stay home. 
  • Student has a positive test result from a communicable condition as stated in TAC, Title 25 §97.9
  • The student has been identified as having been in close contact with COVID-19 and the school nurse has documentation.

 

TEA will only allow remote conferencing for twenty days over the course of the 2021-2022 school year.  Anything beyond 20 days will require a conference with the superintendent and principal.
