Pro-Vision Charter School District’s Interim Superintendent, Warner Ervin, has announced that Pro-Vision Schools will extend the suspension of normal district operations through Friday, April 10, 2020, in an effort to support the national strategy to arrest the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Houston area continues to see an increasing number of confirmed cases of COVID-19, and health officials report that, as more individuals are tested, this number will continue to increase.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that practicing social distancing is a vitally important strategy in containing COVID-19.
We are committed to providing structured, meaningful ways to serve our students during this closure. On Monday, March 16, district and campus level leaders began preparation and planning to develop district-level supports that will provide remote instruction to our students. No later than Monday, March 23, 2020, Pro-Vision Academy administrators and teachers will release instructional information regarding remote learning opportunities for our students.
Please continue to watch the news, monitor your email and visit the Pro-Vision Academy website (provision-inc.org/academy/) for up-to-date information, including information about area feeding locations, both those that have been announced as well as new sites, as they come available. Another good source of information is the Texas Education Agency website: tea.texas.gov/coronavirus.
The health of Pro-Vision Academy students, staff and community is the district’s top priority and district leaders are working to ensure the community has the most current information available.
