London I.S.D. administrators say they will begin their school year via remote learning when classes begin two weeks from now.

In a statement, posted on the London I.S.D. website, Superintendent Dr. Judi Whistis states, "For London, this means we can keep the same school calendar, as revised on July 1, 2020, and begin student instruction via remote means on Wednesday, July 29, 2020. Once we know that we can return to school, we will provide parents the option of continuing the remote learning or the choice to be back on campus for face to face instruction."

Dr. Whistis also stated London I.S.D. will have different expectations and guidelines than what students experienced last spring. The school district announced a new online academic instructional program they will use.

"LISD has purchased a Texas based online curriculum for grades 3-12 that offers a rigorous academic program," said Whitis, "Students will experience a variety of instructional content that is academically challenging and visually engaging to stimulate the educational mind and encourage academic discovery."

Whitis says her and her team are working tirelessly to make learning happen one hundred percent remotely under revised state guidelines.
