On Aug. 5, 2021, the Texas Education Agency released public health guidance for the 2021-22 school year, addressing on-campus instruction, non-UIL extracurricular sports and activities and other student activities. It also released guidance for school staff and referred to best practices from the CDC. Districts must report COVID-19 cases to their local health authority and require people who test positive to quarantine for 10 days. Districts can provide remote learning options for quarantined students that will be eligible for state funding, when certain conditions are met.

TCTA members with questions or concerns about their district's COVID-19 policies should call the Legal Department at 888-879-8282 to speak with a staff attorney.
