Superintendent Martha Salazar-Zamora said in the release that the district is confident in its remote learning model, and pleased with the progress students have made.
"We are fully prepared to finish out the 2019-2020 school year strong with academic instruction," she said.
An in-person graduation will take place sometime in July said Salazar-Zamora, after feedback from seniors went against having a virtual graduation.
"While we remain closed, our goal as a District is to give our graduates an experience they will cherish even amid these challenging times," she said.
Additionally, the Texas Education Agency issued a statement in support of the governor's order.
