AUSTIN—Mike Morath, the state education commissioner, predicted last week that schools will be able to open campuses in the fall for in-person instruction despite more concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.
“But there will also be flexibility for families with health concerns so that their children can be educated remotely if the parent so chooses,” Morath said in a statement.
The commissioner also said there would be no limits on class size or require students or teachers to wear face masks. However, districts will be able to make their own rules on face coverings, an agency spokeswoman said.
The Texas Education Association will be announcing more specific guidelines this week.
