COVID-19 Info For Staff

Leading Forward

While Lockhart ISD’s approach to the school year has changed due to COVID-19, the commitment to grow our students remains unchanged. In Lockhart ISD, we continue to ensure our students are challenged, healthy, engaged, safe, and supported so they can thrive and reach their full potential. We commit to holding high expectations for our students, for ourselves, and each other because this is the foundation for equitable and excellent outcomes for all. This enduring commitment is why students are at an advantage in Lockhart ISD.

The district also takes very seriously the responsibility of caring for the safety and well-being of our students and staff. In our approach to the new school year, our leadership team partnered with a diverse group of 76 LISD staff who served on the Reentry Task Force and the Caldwell County Chief Medical Officer to forge a pathway to reopen schools in a way that prioritized safety while enabling us to serve students the Lockhart ISD way. 
 

The guidance contained within the Leading Forward: LISD COVID-19 Response Plan Guidance for Employees is anchored by the recommendations shared from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Office of the Governor,  and the Texas Education Agency. It is also tethered to the feedback received through the staff Thoughtexchange and subsequent surveys. 

Leading forward, our approach balances our commitment to excellence for our students, our commitment to safeguard the safety and well-being of our students and staff, and federal and state requirements for the provision of public health and safety.
