KILLEEN, Texas – The Killeen Independent School District Board called an emergency board meeting Friday morning.
Leaders explained plans for the district’s Continued Learning Center. Virtual training for teachers is ongoing for the blended web-based learning service for elementary and secondary students. Hard copy packets will be available for pickup at home campuses for those who can’t access the program digitally.
District leaders say Continued Learning is meant to continue a sense of security and connectivity and enhance learning while the district is closed due to the spread of the coronavirus. Board members also learned about district plans to continue to compensate employees, to adjust grade-point average and class ranking policies, to continue “grab-and-go” breakfast and lunch services, and heard a summary of the district’s action responses since Spring Break.
More information about the district’s Continued Learning Center will be released to parents by Monday evening. Students will begin using the Continued Learning Center on Wednesday, March 25.
