Fort Bend ISD, one of the two great districts that serves the students of Lakes of Savannah, has submitted a waiver to the Texas Education Agency asking for four additional weeks of virtual learning. If approved, this would delay face-to-face learning until October 12.
The district would plan on phasing in the students for face-to-face learning over a period of 13 days. Superintendent Charles Dupre states, “My goal is to lead according to the best interest of our students and our staff, even if that means challenging TEA guidelines.”
The phase in would begin with kindergarteners returning on September 28, followed by the middle and high school students the following week. In the meantime, students would continue asynchronous learning while teachers are preparing their classrooms.
Families can still choose whether they would like their student to return for face-to-face learning or continue virtual. Students returning to campus can expect schedule changes at that time, however it does coincide with the end of the first nine weeks grading period.
Lakes of Savannah students are also served by Alvin ISD.
