Our Task: Create an agile and flexible plan with exceptional student learning experiences being the constant for the 2020-2021 school year.
The pillars of Belton ISD’s response to COVD-19 planning process are collaboration and feedback. The district believes that bringing together the brightest thinkers to sketch out ideas, then running them through our stakeholders, will ultimately lead to the best plans.
Superintendent Dr. Matt Smith tasked his Design Planning Team, composed of leaders from across the district, with planning for multiple scenarios the district is likely to face in the coming months.
“With the fluidity of the COVID-19 situation, our plans can’t just be for what we know today,” he said. “There are a lot of different variables, and our job is to plan for all of them. So we’re not just planning for August 19. We’re planning for the entire year.”

Good hygiene techniques are what’s available to keep the Big Red Community as safe as possible. We recommend students of all ages start practicing these habits now to ensure they’re prepared for face-to-face learning in the fall:
- Health Checks
Screen yourself daily for signs of COVID-19. If you think you may have symptoms, please stay home and contact a healthcare provider.
Wash your hands with soap and water frequently for at least 20 seconds.
For those who can, wear a mask or cloth face covering in public.
Stay at least 6 feet away from others as best you can. Avoid contact.
