Van ISD is offering both Traditional On-Campus Instruction (In-Person) and Virtual Instruction (Remote/Online Instruction). Both programs will follow Van ISD’s TEKS-based curriculum. Families will be asked to select one of these options when they complete their enrollment or information review in Skyward Family Access. If a family wishes to change their child's method of instruction, changes to the selection can be made at the end of a nine-week grading period.
