Leander ISD is holding an online survey so LISD stakeholders may “share ideas, concerns, and thoughts regarding our starting school” Aug. 13.

Those taking the survey may state their opinions on how school should look in August. Survey takers may also rate other comments and suggestions left by other survey takers.

The survey asks for input on four scenarios: from "traditional" learning to remote learning to two hybrids.

“In the best-case scenario, we hope to bring all students back to school,” the May 29 news release said. “On the opposite end of this continuum, we find ourselves required to once again close school buildings and to implement a redesigned, high-quality model of virtual learning.”


“In between, we have a mixture of learning from home and learning at school," it continued. "Where we land on this continuum will depend upon our thoughtful planning, the input of the Leander ISD community and guidance from state and county health officials."

According to the May 29 news release, LISD originally considered holding two virtual meetings to discuss the 2020-21 school year “in the coming weeks,” but those may be canceled due to the strong turnout the district is receiving from the online survey, according to LISD spokesperson Matt Mitchell.
