LISD applies for change in makeup day
The Lindale Independent School District has applied for a waiver from the Texas Education Agency which would exempt the district from holding classes on May 31 as a snow day makeup.
The date was originally scheduled on the district’s school calendar to recover instruction time lost after LISD’s closure on February 4 due to winter weather.
The district will extend two early release days to full-length instruction days to meet the criteria for the waiver. Students will no longer be released two hours early on March 22 and May 26. Instead, classes will be released at the regularly scheduled end time on each campus. The Lindale ISD school board approved the amendment to the calendar on Monday night.
“By substituting two early release days for a full makeup day, we are not requiring students to be back in the classroom after Memorial Day,” LISD Superintendent Stan Surratt said.
