ALICE, TEXAS — Alice ISD administrators are going to hold an emergency school board meeting to discuss, consider, and take possible action on delaying the school start date.

The meeting can be attended via a Zoom meeting 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. Educators want to discuss pushing back the first day of school after Labor Day due to the lack of tablets.

In a newsletter sent out to parents, it states, "Pushing back the start of school has become necessary due to unforeseen delays in shipping of new technology devices, Internet repairs at William Adams Middle School, as well as the impact of COVID-19 on our district’s staff and families."

The extra time will give educators and students to be more thoroughly prepared for virtual instruction.

If approved, the date will change from August 24, 2020, to September 8, 2020.
