Parents of Lewisville ISD students appear largely split on whether to send their children to school or to have them learn virtually, with a little over half opting for in-person learning.

Families have until the evening of Aug. 5 to make final decisions on whether their child will take part in in-person, virtual or virtual plus learning this fall after Sept. 8.

The district shared preliminary results from parents at an Aug. 3 board work session. Nearly 90% of parents had responded at the primary and secondary level at that time.

Of the primary-level parents who responded, roughly 53% chose in-person learning for their child, while roughly 46% opted for virtual learning. For secondary students, roughly 48% chose in-person learning; roughly 32% chose virtual; and 20% opted for virtual plus in the fall.

A small percentage of respondents—less than 1% at both the primary and secondary level—chose to withdraw from the district.


A more detailed breakdown of how each campus responded can be found below.
