Needville ISD grading system procedures are being reviewed due to Covid-19. We are monitoring student progress and completion of assigned curriculum. Our goal is for every student to show proficiency to ensure they are prepared academically for the next grade level or graduation. At this time students need to continue to complete assignments through home-based instruction whether it be google classroom or paper packets.
Dear Needville school-community, Needville ISD will extend the closure of all campuses with an indefinite return date for the 2019-20 school year. Governor Abbott has announced today that school buildings shall be closed through May 4, 2020. Based on that Executive Order, we wish to embrace the challenge of continuing the home-based instructional process for a successful completion of the 2019-20 school year, whether we return to "normal school" in May or not. If it is determined that we will resume normal operations, it will be announced one week prior. Continue the parent/teacher/campus communication and we will work through this COVID-19 pandemic TOGETHER. This truly is a first for all of us! Please be safe. Wash hands regularly, disinfect living/working areas, adhere to the social distancing/small grouping requirements and isolate yourself if you are feeling any symptoms. It is up to all of us to stop this virus from spreading! God Bless to All, Curtis Rhodes
