Window to Opt In or Out of KVA

Students who opted for the Katy Virtual Academy (KVA) learning option will continue with their KVA schedule through the end of the current six-week (secondary) and nine-week (elementary) grading period. Campuses have worked extremely hard to balance in-person and virtual classes as well as implement all campus phase 1 safety protocols.

Secondary – submission window to change your child’s current instructional delivery option opens Monday, October 12 - October 23. Please check your campus’ webpage for the commitment link. Once you successfully submit a form to change your child’s instructional delivery setting, you will receive a confirmation email noting your change selection. If you do not see this email in your inbox, please check your Spam/Clutter folder. If you still do not see a confirmation, please submit the form again.

Elementary – submission window to change your child’s current instructional deliver option is closed. For those parents who selected to change instructional delivery option for the second nine weeks, that change in instruction will begin on Oct. 19 (the first day of the second grading period).

Reminder - all opt-in changes are in effect at the beginning of the six-week (secondary) and nine-week (elementary) grading period. Changes to instructional delivery settings can result in a change in your child’s teacher(s) and daily schedule.

Reminder – if you would like your child to remain in the instructional delivery setting he/she is currently in, there is NO action needed on the part of the parent.

If you have any questions regarding the next opportunity to change your child’s learning option for the second grading period, please email KVA@katyisd.org.

If there is a need for a change in your child’s learning option due to a medical hardship, please email your concern to medicalhardship@katyisd.org. Pending the decision of the review committee, students will remain in their current learning option.
