TISD to implement 4-day instructional week

Last night the TISD Board of Trustees met in a special session to discuss ways to retain and attract teachers to our district

  1. The board has decided to implement a 4-day instructional week. With this innovative change comes a lot of questions and challenges, but a lot of questioning, thought and planning has already gone into the discussion. We believe this will help with the retention/attraction of staff and help the attendance rate of staff and students. We know some parents may be concerned about childcare for their younger children on Fridays. We are discussing some creative ways to help families on Fridays if needed. We will put out a calendar as soon as possible with more information to come. Please understand that all districts in Texas must comply with the minimum number of minutes per year. To make this adjustment, students and staff will be returning to school a couple of weeks earlier than normal and school will end a week or so later than normal. Additionally, the school day will be increased by about an hour in order to comply with required minutes.
  2. The board also discussed ways to increase pay for teachers and staff. We hope to get more information out soon. But, this too is an area we feel will help our district.

The last two years have not been easy, but you are valued at TISD. I don’t believe you will find another district that cares more about the students, teachers, and staff. Our board is open to new ideas and wants what’s best for all in the district. I hope you find these changes exciting. We just have a few more weeks of school.  Thank you for all you do and let’s do our best to end this year better than ever.

Sincerely,

Mid Johnson

Dear TISD Community,

Timpson ISD is actively engaged in promoting a safe school for students and staff. Currently, TISD has active COVID cases that span many of the grade levels as we are reporting each day. We also have one employee case. We are actively cleaning and taking precautions to prevent more illnesses in hopes that this cycle lessens. If parents wish to quarantine their children who are at risk or have been around someone who has Covid 19, we do not fault you for doing so. Please, do not send your children to school if they have symptoms of Covid 19. Help us monitor this situation. Please, view our website each day for updates and new information.
