CAST Tech students, staff returning to in-person learning this week, adjust to new COVID-19 protocols
SAN ANTONIO Students returning to in-person learning this week are not only seeing fewer classmates in school but also learning new protocols. Only 50 of the 500 students enrolled at CAST Tech High School are on campus this week. The San Antonio Independent School District said the principal and secretary check temperatures for staff members. Right now, were capped at five students per classroom, and our students are used to having 24 students in a classroom, Alcala said. The positivity rate for San Antonio is at 6.7%, but the mayor said it would need to drop below 5% before the meter moves into the safe level.
SAISD Asks State to Approve New Classes in User Experience, Court Reporting
San Antonio Independent School District trustees asked state education officials Monday night to approve four new class offerings for the 2020-21 school year: court reporting and user experience, or UX. The court reporting classes would be offered at Fox Tech High School while students at CAST Tech High School would be able to take two user experience courses. State education officials allow districts to offer innovative courses, or classes that teach students skills and information not included in state-approved curriculum. Last year, SAISD received State approval to offer a fundamental user experience class at CAST Tech high school, Vahalik said. In the past, SBOE members have used innovative courses as the starting point in creating other state-approved courses.therivardreport.com
