From Dr Ethan Crowell's Desk: KVA Reminder & More


Dear Jordan Community,


This year students will have the option of choosing to receive instruction either Face-to-Face (F2F), or virtually through Katy Virtual Academy (KVA).  Some very good information about the Return to School, including safety measures and KVA expectations can be found at http://www.katyisd.org/returntoschool/Pages/default.aspx. If a student chooses to receive instruction through KVA, they must sign up by going to KVA commitment form.  Students can only change their choice of either F2F or KVA at the end of a grading period.  The deadline to select KVA to start the school year is August 5, 2020. General questions about KVA can be sent to KVA@katyisd.org. If a student chooses to receive instruction through F2F, there is nothing that has to be done at this time.  Katy ISD has chosen to start the school year with all students receiving instruction virtually.  Students who choose F2F will return for in-person instruction on September 8, which is not at the end of a grading period, so they will not be able to choose to move to KVA at that time. I will continue to send periodic reminders about important information.  I encourage you to keep up to date by going to the Katy ISD website for the most current information.

I have also included a video HERE with an explanation of what KVA will look like for students. 

At Your Service, 

Ethan Crowell
