Tigers Never Quit!
Commerce ISD is closing all campuses beginning Thursday, October 22 and moving to online learning. Students and staff will return to campuses on Thursday, October 29.
The CISD Board of Trustees voted Monday, September 21, to change the hybrid model of A-B days to students coming onsite four days a week at CHS. Classes will be held online only Mondays so that teachers can prepare for the week. The change goes in effect Wednesday, September 23.
CHS will continue with hybrid instruction at least another month while CES, ACW and CMS will begin face-to-face instruction on Monday, August 24.
A survey showed the hybrid instructional model put a strain on parents, however, many staff members preferred the hybrid instruction especially at CHS where adult-sized students made social distancing difficult.
