Back to School: North Texas school district start dates & delays

Most local school districts will be offering both virtual and face-to-face learning options this fall in accordance with the Texas Education Agency’s latest guidelines. However, some districts will delay reopening classrooms and start the year with only online learning.

Dallas County

Dallas County ordered school districts to postpone in-person classes until after Labor Day. The Texas Attorney General has since said that local health officials do not have the authority to close schools because of COVID-19.
