If our district decides students who choose online over in person will not be allowed to participate in electives... will they be allowed to do the all-state process? Nothing is final but as stands today we go back in person in my district.
Dinah Menger
16:03
You should reach out to Brad Kent, UIL. Virtual students are still viable students within the campus Don't let that decision happen!!
Joshua McGuire
16:18
@Christina Hallwachs … TMEA will support you and what you and your district decides to allow students electing E-Learning to do.
Sam Harris
17:26
if your district chooses to eliminate students from extra curricular participation they are required for file a detailed plan with TEA…make sure they’ve done this

C. Mollyn Cole
19:41
@Christina Hallwachs….I concur with Dinah & Joshua -- TMEA will support you. Also, all of the information coming from Morath's office stipulates that face to face and/or virtual students can not be prevented from participating in extracurricular activities. Do not allow your district to marginalize your program OR misinterpret that to solely mean athletics.

Gyasi Blanton

Homero Silva

We are the masters of differentiation
Coty Raven Morris
01:12:02
It’s imperative that we remember SEL Is not a “fix all”. Nor is it something that has to be added to your calendar. It’s more of a mantra to keep in mind with suggested tools to incorporate in your lessons and environment.
Christina Hallwachs
01:12:09
Thank you Jesse!
Dinah Menger
01:13:19
That may change after Singer Research data is finalized.

Is the District providing any of those things for the students?
Joshua McGuire
01:17:15
@ Joey Lawrence … Garland ISD IS proving face shields to all students and teachers in Garland ISD. They are left in the building at the end of the day and sanitized. Masks are provided, but students are encouraged to bring their own.
Jennifer Colton-Fowler
01:18:19
I am working currently with my district here (Texarkana ISD) to get shields. They will be providing them for faculty, but I am trying to see if we can get them for my singers, as well.
Joshua McGuire
01:18:26
Lowrence … sorry. Auto correct.
Sam Harris
01:18:42
We are buying clear masks and face shields for every choir students in Galena Park that they will keep with them We are also providing masks and shields for every fine arts teacher
Joey Lowrance
01:19:53
No problem. We have a maker space at our school and the guy in charge of it is making 15,000 face shields for our District. One for each student and staff member. Keeping them in the room and sanitizing them is a great idea.
Monica Muscato
01:20:12
All these documents on TMEA, correct?
Jennifer Colton-Fowler
01:20:28
I’ve also seen some research that indicates that shorter people could infect those taller than them as their hot breath rises up
Joshua McGuire
01:20:31
@Monica Muscato … yes
Leigh Ann McClure
01:20:40
These are great, Dinah! Thanks for sharing.
