Secondary students to begin hybrid learning model Tues, Sept. 8

Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 8, Denton ISD’s secondary campuses will operate on a hybrid learning model, a mix of remote instruction and face-to-face instruction, for all secondary students.  The hybrid model for grades 6-12 will allow campuses to reduce student capacity, by as much as 50 percent, which is within the occupancy guidelines recommended by Denton County Health officials, within the school buildings.

Families who selected the ConnectedLearning option for their secondary student will not be affected. Elementary campus schedules will also not be affected.

“Our staff and campus leaders believe this model is currently the best option to address safety protocols and health guidance during this pandemic,” said Dr.  Jamie Wilson, superintendent of schools.

Student ID cards for those enrolled in grades 6 - 12, were printed with specific cohort information for each student.  Cohort information identifies the days of the week a student should participate in face-to-face instruction on their campus. 

IDs display the following code: 

  • Cohort 1 - Denoted by “MW1”
  • Cohort 2 – Denoted by “TR2”

Students in “Cohort MW1” will attend school in-person on Mondays, Wednesdays, and every other Friday for face-to-face learning.  These students will remain at home on Tuesdays and Thursdays, learning remotely.

Students assigned to “Cohort TR2” will attend school on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and every other Friday for face-to-face learning.  These students will participate in learning remotely on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Since students return on Tuesday, Sept. 8, those  assigned to Cohort TR2 will attend campus for their first day of face-to-face instruction, while Cohort MW1 will not attend face-to-face learning until Wednesday, Sept. 9.

All secondary students may participate in their extracurricular activities during their designated class period and practices. This includes all days for face-to-face/remote and ConnectedLearning students.

For more information or specific questions related to your family’s needs, please contact your student’s campus directly.


High School

Middle School

High School students will remain on a “block” schedule with alternating “A” and “B” days. When an assigned cohort attends school on an alternating Friday, they will follow an 8-period day schedule, allowing students to spend time with both their A-day and B-day instructors.  


LaGrone ATC students will participate in face-to-face instruction with their cohort on their alternating Friday. Learning labs/locations, on each student’s home campus, have been assigned for ATC students to connect remotely with their ATC instructors.


The ATC will be open for those students to attend face-to-face instruction on campus to earn critical hands-on instruction and accumulate contact hours required for licensure and/or certification. Specific details will be shared from the ATC staff.

Middle school students, whether they are remote or on campus,  will follow the traditional 8-period day schedule based on the cohort to which they have been assigned.
