The plan developed by Jarrell Independent School District (JISD) was developed during the 2020-2021 school year and has been updated for the 2021-2022 school year.

Jarrell ISD will continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 in our community.

Balancing Student Absences for COVID-19 and Class Credit

The Jarrell ISD Student Handbook (page 34) states, "To receive credit or a final grade in a class, a student must attend at least 90 percent of the days the class is offered. A student who attends fewer than 90 percent of the days the class is offered will be referred to the attendance review committee to determine whether there are extenuating circumstances for the absences and how the student can regain credit or a final grade lost because of absences."

Jarrell ISD administrators understand the COVID-19 pandemic may place students and families in very difficult circumstances. The health and safety of our students remain our top priority. We do not want students to jeopardize themselves or others by attending school when they are sick because they are concerned about missing too much school. Therefore, if your child contracts COVID-19 and must miss 10 days of school for quarantine, students and parents are encouraged to work with their campus administration. An attendance committee will meet to determine if your student has mastered the class material. If your student demonstrates mastery of the class, the time missed due to COVID-19 will not impact his or her ability to receive full credit for the class. This applies to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade.

Please know our path forward regarding attendance during the pandemic is subject to change pending new legislation or guidance from the Texas Education Agency.
