  • The information below is Pearland ISD's health response protocols. Due to changing metrics and health trends, we anticipate possible changes and revisions to our operating procedures as the school year progresses.

    Pearland ISD will continue to consult with and review the guidance issued by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) as well as local, state, and national public health officials. Additionally, any order issued by the governor’s office will be followed. Due to changing metrics and health trends, we anticipate possible changes and revisions to our operating procedures as the school year progresses. When Pearland ISD looks to modify operations, a committee of professionals will review multiple indicators and strategies to determine our COVID-19 response, to ensure a healthy and safe environment for our students, staff, and community. 

    Pearland ISD will review COVID-19 data from Brazoria County and individual district facilities as indicators for an appropriate operational response. The Superintendent will make decisions to adjust the COVID-19 response based on the data. Pearland ISD will weigh all factors before an operational decision is made.
