    ‌Notification‌ ‌of‌ ‌On-campus‌ ‌Requirements‌ 

     
    Willis‌ ‌ISD‌ ‌has‌ ‌determined‌ ‌certain‌ ‌Career‌ ‌and‌ ‌Technical‌ ‌(CTE)‌ ‌classes‌ ‌require‌ ‌a‌ ‌portion‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ 
    course‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌completed‌ ‌on-campus.‌ ‌These‌ ‌courses‌ ‌require‌ ‌specialized‌ ‌equipment,‌ ‌direct‌ 
    supervision‌ ‌of‌ ‌hands-on‌ ‌activities,‌ ‌and/or‌ ‌specific‌ ‌materials‌ ‌and‌ ‌technology.‌ ‌The‌ ‌appropriate‌ 
    amount‌ ‌of‌ ‌on-campus‌ ‌instruction‌ ‌needed‌ ‌to‌ ‌meet‌ ‌the‌ ‌TEKS‌ ‌and‌ ‌award‌ ‌course‌ ‌credit‌ ‌will‌ ‌vary‌ ‌by‌ 
    course.‌ 
     
    Students‌ ‌choosing‌ ‌remote‌ ‌instruction‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌required‌ ‌to‌ ‌come‌ ‌on‌ ‌campus‌ ‌to‌ ‌carry‌ ‌out‌ ‌specified‌ 
    assignments‌ ‌and‌ ‌activities‌ ‌that‌ ‌cannot‌ ‌be‌ ‌reasonably‌ ‌completed‌ ‌remotely.‌ ‌This‌ ‌notification‌ 
    ensures‌ ‌students‌ ‌have‌ ‌an‌ ‌option‌ ‌to‌ ‌select‌ ‌courses‌ ‌that‌ ‌can‌ ‌be‌ ‌completed‌ ‌remotely‌ ‌if‌ ‌desired.‌ 
    Families‌ ‌may‌ ‌choose‌ ‌different‌ ‌electives‌ ‌that‌ ‌can‌ ‌be‌ ‌satisfied‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌fully‌ ‌remote‌ ‌setting.‌ ‌Failure‌ ‌to‌ 
    appear‌ ‌to‌ ‌complete‌ ‌on-campus‌ ‌assignments‌ ‌could‌ ‌also‌ ‌result‌ ‌in‌ ‌absences‌ ‌that‌ ‌could‌ ‌subject‌ ‌the‌ 
    student‌ ‌to‌ ‌denial‌ ‌of‌ ‌credit‌ ‌for‌ ‌lack‌ ‌of‌ ‌attendance,‌ ‌in‌ ‌accordance‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌90%‌ ‌rule‌ ‌outlined‌ ‌by‌ ‌the‌ 
    state‌ ‌of‌ ‌Texas.‌

    parents‌ ‌will‌ ‌work‌ ‌directly‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌instructor‌ ‌to‌ ‌schedule‌ ‌on-campus‌ ‌instruction‌ ‌dates‌ ‌and‌ ‌times.‌ 
     
    If‌ ‌your‌ ‌student‌ ‌is‌ ‌enrolled‌ ‌in‌ ‌one‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌classes‌ ‌listed‌ ‌above‌ ‌and‌ ‌you‌ ‌do‌ ‌not‌ ‌plan‌ ‌on‌ ‌them‌ 
    completing‌ ‌the‌ ‌on-campus‌ ‌requirements,‌ ‌please‌ ‌contact‌ ‌your‌ ‌student’s‌ ‌counselor‌ ‌about‌ ‌a‌
