Return to School Update | July 29

Additional secondary course offerings added to virtual learning pathway.

LISD Middle School and High School Families,

We want to provide you updates and additional information as we move into this school year. We appreciate your response to our commitment form and for the feedback you provided for our learning options. 

In response to the requests we received to provide additional course offerings in our Virtual Learning Pathway, we have considered what additional courses could be added. While we are not able to replicate every course that is offered on our campuses in the virtual program, we are adding courses where there was a high volume of students who had signed up for the course across the district. 

LISD will create the curriculum for these virtual courses since it is not available from Edgenuity.  

Middle School
The following courses have been added in the virtual option.

  • In addition to beginner band, choir, orchestra and theatre:
    • Intermediate & Advanced Band

      **In-person course names may vary by campus (ie. Symphonic, Concert, Ensemble, etc)

  • Fine Art

Next Steps
We will begin the school year on August 19, with all students learning remotely. 

If you have selected In-Person learning, your learning will be remote until September 8. After September 8, you will return to campus for In-Person learning. 

If you plan to continue learning remotely beyond Sept 8, you will keep your Virtual or Virtual Plus commitment through the end of the first 9 weeks. If you selected Virtual or Virtual Plus on your commitment form, you will receive an email in the coming days with a form. In that form, you will be prompted to update your course selections that are not offered Virtually or through Virtual Plus. 

We are so grateful for your continued commitment to Lewisville ISD and your student’s learning. We will keep updated information on the LISD website in our FAQ section.
