As previously communicated during the planning process, Cedar Hill ISD’s ability to launch the Longhorn Virtual Academy was contingent upon state legislation that would fully fund virtual learning for Texas school districts. Unfortunately, House Bill 1468 did not pass during this recent legislative session, which ended on May 30, 2021.
Regrettably, this means that Cedar Hill ISD is suspending our plan to offer Longhorn Virtual Academy this fall.
CHISD will continue to monitor the topic if it comes up for discussion during the Texas Legislature’s Special Session. If anything changes with regard to the Virtual Academy, we will inform you about it as soon as possible.
