LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - According to the Texas Education Agency, there are no plans to allow remote learning this upcoming school year.

In a statement to KGNS, the state agency says any changes would depend on legislation.

It goes on to say during the 2020-21 school year, TEA used its disaster authority to authorize funding for remote instruction -- but that authority can not be used again for the new school year.

The TEA says existing law allows students to participate in a full-time virtual experience only if they attend one of the seven schools in the state previously deemed virtual.
