Now Taking applications for Virtual Learners!

The Ashland Independent School District is now taking applications for students who wish to participate in the Virtual Learning Experience from September 20, 2021 until December 17, 2021.  Families who wish to remain in-person do not need to apply.  Even though you may have completed an interest survey at your school this weekend, you still must complete this application by 4:00 pm on Wednesday, September 15th to be enrolled in the virtual program.  The link can be found here:


Beginning Monday, September 20th, 2021 Ashland Independent School District will provide a virtual instructional platform in addition to the current in-person option.  As a result, meal distribution will change for virtual learners.  Students choosing the in-person instructional model will continue to be served at each school and will have access to one free breakfast and one free lunch each day at their school.  In-person students may continue to place money on their account and purchase ala carte items.  To minimize contact, cafeterias will NOT have change on site.
