Longview Independent School District is releasing the preliminary results of an ongoing survey for teachers and families about back-to-school plans.

Following a request from the Texas Education Agency to gauge sentiment from local stakeholders, the district asked our parents and staff to share their feelings about On-Campus, Remote, or Hybrid models of instruction for the 2020-21 school year.

As of Monday morning, more than 2,000 responses to the surveys have been recorded.

Dr. James Hockenberry, Assistant Superintendent of District Services, presented the LISD Board of Trustees with preliminary results, explaining that the Community Relations department plans to keep the survey "live" through the end of the week.

"Our administration is working diligently in the planning process for the coming year, and this survey is going to be an invaluable resource," said Dr. Hockenberry. "We've had some great turnout [to surveys] recently, and we look at this as an indication that we're asking the right questions.

Dr. James Wilcox, Superintendent of Schools, said the administration will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and follow guidance from federal, state, and local officials.

"As we continue to navigate through uncertain and uncharted waters, we remind our community that decisions are subject to change," he said. "But what won't change is our commitment to keeping our community informed through every means possible."
