Reopening of Schools 2020-2021
Please note that Reopening Plans are subject to change in order to remain in compliance with ever-changing guidance from our local and state officials, especially the Texas Education Agency (TEA), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
With so many districts and media outlets reporting on the reopening plans for local school districts, be assured that EBISD is developing and reviewing plans to welcome our staff and students back to school, as allowed. Please check the EBISD home webpage (Superintendent Hudgins' memo) for the latest news and plans for reopening our schools.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to plan for a safe return to campus.

TSIA Information Update!
East Bernard High School, along with Wharton Junior College, will be administering the TSIA on our campus July 20-23. Due to current Covid-19 mandates, we will limit the amount of students testing, and we will follow safety guidelines and protocol.
Ms. Sulak has been in contact with students in the Classes of 2021 and 2022 regarding their status for Dual classes for the upcoming school year, and only those that have not met exemption status based on other criteria will need to test. Additionally, we will test any member of the Class of 2020 that did not meet TSIA requirements, provided space is available.
Students check your school email and contact Ms. Sulak if you have any questions.
More information to follow.

SAT and ACT Update for Class of 2021
Texas A&M University says they will not be requiring submission of ACT or SAT scores for applicants for the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters of 2021. The Executive Director of Admissions, Chris Reed, said he and his staff have been actively monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on students as they prepare to apply to colleges in the coming year.
“Given the continued restrictions on in-person testing opportunities and in light of recent announcements regarding halted plans for virtual testing, we recognize that action needs to be taken,” Reed said. “Students may continue to submit standardized scores from their SAT and/or ACT tests for consideration for admission. Submission of tests scores will not create any unfair advantage or disadvantage for those students who provide them.”
Please check with the college of your choice and inquire about the SAT/ACT exam for the admissions process.
