Bryan ISD ends plans for virtual academy.

Last week Bryan ISD allowed parents to vote on rather or not the virtual academy would happen for the district. After a school board meeting held on October 4th, Associate Superintendent Dr. Barbara Ybarra stated the decision to end plans for the virtual academy was made after the district was unable to find enough certified teachers.

According to KWTX, the interest in the virtual academy was incredibly low. With only 170 parents showing interest those numbers were unexpected.

The district intended to start the virtual academy at the beginning of the school year but they had a slight delay. The academy would allow students to participate in classes virtually grades kindergarten through sixth.

With the recent decision to end planning for this years virtual academy Bryan ISD is now exploring opening a virtual academy for the 2022-2023 school year.
