Under the public health crisis’s social distancing requirements, educator certification testing centers have been closed for extended periods or operating at significantly reduced capacity, limiting the ability of educators and educator candidates to complete certification exam requirements necessary to receive certification. Additionally, preparation programs may be unable to complete requirements for in-person clinical experiences and observations for the upcoming school year. To manage the impact of the public health crisis on educator certification and preparation programs, Governor Abbott has suspended certain requirements to provide flexibility for candidates, districts, and educator preparation programs for the 2020-21 school year.

In these unprecedented times, Leander ISD’s thoughts are with our community members whose employment has been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.  As we monitor the progress of this interruption to the district’s normal operations, we are preparing for when we can reopen our campuses once the pandemic has passed.

Leander ISD is currently evaluating several potential models in light of the changing situation, and following guidance established by local, state and federal leaders. 

Regardless of what decisions are reached in order to open our campuses and operations, we must ask that all applicants, new employees, and current staff be prepared for possible variations in campus assignments, hours of operations, and modifications to job duties among other considerations.

Any of these possible changes may not be known until we move into the school year and certainly will depend upon any developments in managing COVID -19 restrictions and recommendations.
