What is the North Texas Enrichment Center?

How does "In-Person Support for Public School Remote Learning" work?
This program provides support to parents who choose their school’s remote learning option but may have other responsibilities to handle simultaneously. NTEC facilitators oversee daily remote learning and provide feedback to parents, while students have the opportunity to socialize and participate in recess in a safe small-group setting.
Does my child need to bring his/her own computer?
Yes. We ask that each student bring their own computer and headphones. Students may leave their computers and headphones at NTEC overnight. If you do not have a computer for the student to bring, we ask that you check out a computer from your school district. North Texas Enrichment Center has a limited number of computers available in the event a student is unable to bring their own. Each student, however, must bring their own headphones.
How many students are in a group?
Students are grouped according to grade level with a maximum of 10 students per group.
Will my student wear a mask?
Yes but not all day. Students are required to wear a mask upon arrival, dismissal and in transitions to another location in the building. Students will not be required to wear masks in the classroom, at recess, or during snack and lunch. Staff will wear masks all day.
Who are the adult staff members?
Student/staff member ratio is 10:1. Staff members consist of Education in Action's Discover Texas Field Trips Directors as well as certified teachers that are permanent staff members of Education in Action. Each year Education in Action conducts a background check on all adult staff members prior to the school and summer programs. Bios are found here: Meet the Teachers
