Skyward 2020-2021 Commitment Form Instructions

  • Georgetown ISD will be offering families a choice of remote learning or in-person learning for the 2020-2021 school year.   Preferences for remote or on-campus learning may be changed up to 2 weeks prior to the start of each grading period. If you do not provide a choice for the next nine weeks, we will assume your student is continuing with the learning choice you made already.
