As preparations are made for the start of the 2020-21 school year, Sheldon ISD is committed to the safety and health of all students and staff. On July 7, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) issued guidelines for school districts to open this fall with two options: in-person learning and virtual learning. A task force made up of Sheldon ISD educators have been working diligently to prepare instructional options for continued student success. Sheldon ISD will offer in-person learning and Sheldon On Demand, a virtual learning platform, for the 2020-21 school year.
