Bryan ISD approves CTE contracts with local school districts
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -Bryan ISD continues to move forward with plans for this upcoming school year.
During a board meeting on Monday, trustees approved contracts that will allow Snook, Caldwell, and now College Station ISD students to take classes at the CTE complex.
"We need to be welcoming and opening to providing these amazing opportunities to kids in the area," said Christie Whitbeck Bryan ISD Superintendent.
Whitbeck says COVID-19 hasn’t changed their plans to continue bringing in students from outside the district.
“I know the superintendents are pleased that this is still going to be an option and we’re excited to work with them,” said Whitbeck.
Caldwell Superintendent Andrew Peters says they're ready to follow Bryan's lead with the best practices to keep the CTE students safe.
"I'm sure Bryan has a ton of rules just like we do about cleaning things and wiping things down and disinfecting. I don't think it will be a big problem. It's really going to fall on Bryan's lap, we won't be able to make the decision. It's their program and their properties. We're just glad to be a part of it," said Peters.
"I predict that the screening out there will be similar to what we would do at the regular campus' and it's possible that the districts may screen the students before they ever put them on the bus," said Whitbeck.
Whitbeck says as things change she continues to stay in touch with other superintendents.
“We all are in communication with each other and we’re very supportive of each other and sharing ideas,” said Whitbeck.
Bryan ISD will be offering in-person, online, and hybrid learning options. They began sending out letters to parents on Monday asking them to make the decision on which option they want for their child.
