Option 2: Enhanced In-Person & Remote Class Instruction Plan - This hybrid class combines in-person instruction with remote class instruction (join via Zoom) concurrently with increased safety and disinfecting measures as listed in Option 1.

Option 3: Scheduled remote Class Instruction Plan - Students don't come to any site to attend class. Instead, they join an online class via Zoom at a specified scheduled time to participate in remote/online learning. Enrollment, testing, and instruction would be offered 100% online. Students must meet technology requirements to participate in this plan. 

Option 4: Distance Learning Plan -Students use web-based program to access learning curriculum aligned to the Texas Workforce Commission Content Standards designed to fill-in learning gaps the students need to achieve educational goals.
