Mansfield ISD parents/guardians wanting to switch modes of instruction for their child (Virtual Learning Academy to in-person or in-person to the Virtual Learning Academy) have the option to do so during the Texas Education Agency’s designated learning transfer windows.

The next opportunity to submit a transfer request from one mode to the other is Oct. 5 through Oct. 21.

Those interested in transferring must log in to their Skyward Family Access account to submit the form within that time frame. The form will close at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 21. You do not need to fill out the form if you want to stay in your current learning mode.

Transfers submitted during the noted window will take effect on Wednesday, Nov. 4, which is the first day of the third six weeks grading period. View this calendar to see all the transfer windows and grading periods for the 2020-21 school year.

PLEASE NOTE: Beginning Nov. 4, all students who have selected in-person instruction will only be counted present when they are physically in class unless they have been quarantined due to COVID-19. Quarantined students will be able to follow current practices to gain attendance for days they are quarantined.

After submitting a transfer request, campus personnel will be reaching out to parents to inform them of their child’s schedule changes once those changes are completed.

It is highly encouraged that students commit to a learning option for one semester to ensure continuity of teacher and schedule. View more information about Fall Reopening 2020 here.
