In a letter to district superintendents on Feb. 18, TEA outlined three options for districts for the week of Feb. 22-26 as recovery from the winter storm continues. 

  1. Continue with in-person instruction.
  2. If your LEA continues to experience infrastructure issues because of outages and its related impacts, it may provide 100% remote instruction. Your LEA must submit an “Other” waiver through the Waivers application via the TEA Login (TEAL) to claim full day minutes for any remote day.
  3. If your LEA continues to experience infrastructure issues because of outages and its related impacts that prevents it from providing remote instruction, the LEA may close completely. Please submit these Missed School Day waiver requests through the Waivers Application via TEAL, with supporting documentation, following the closure event.
