Leander ISD will continue with its plan to use remote learning during summer school in June, according to LISD Superintendent Bruce Gearing.

On May 18, Gov. Greg Abbott gave Texas schools permission to hold in-person summer school sessions starting June 1 as long as social distancing recommendations from the Texas Department of State Health Services were followed.


“At this time, we don’t plan to offer anything in person in the month of June,” Gearing told LISD trustees at a May 19 budget workshop.

LISD staff is working on at least four scenarios for instruction when the 2020-21 school year starts in August and plans to discuss the options in June.
