Most respondents to a Lytle ISD parent survey posted on the district website regarding back-to-school options indicated that they preferred a remote start over face-to-face instruction for their students.
Superintendent Michelle Carroll Smith released the survey results in a letter to parents dated July 23.
Lytle ISD serves approximately 1,675 students, and the survey attracted 1,198 responses. Of those, 224 were from the primary campus, 401 from the elementary campus, 293 from the junior high, and 280 from the high school.
Respondents from all four campuses favored remote learning over face to face learning, including 51 percent to 49 percent at the primary campus; 60 percent to 40 percent at the elementary school; 65 percent to 34 percent at LJHS; and 63 percent to 38 percent at LHS.
A week prior to the start of school, now scheduled for August 26, parents will receive a survey to allow them to choose either remote or on-campus instruction for their student(s).
The Pirate Back to School Health and Safety Plan was also released as part of Smith’s letter, and can be viewed on the district website at www.lytleisd.org. The plan primarily covers health and safety concerns regarding the return to school and leans heavily on guidance from the Texas Education Agency and Centers for Disease Control.
