Letter to Texas Commissioner of Education, Mike Morath.

Kingsville ISD Board of Trustees asks that TEA reduce the required number of Instructional minutes, relax attendance requirements and waive testing standards for the 2020-2021 school year. These decisions would allow districts to focus their efforts on building a safe environment and strong curriculum for all students. Please, click here and read the complete letter.
