    District concludes successful fall semester, looking towards busy spring (12/17/2020)

    It is difficult to fathom that we are about to complete the first half of the 2020-2021 school year. As I pause to reflect on the events of the past few months, I am pleased how well our students, teachers and staff have progressed through so much change and challenge. Approximately, 60% of our total enrollment will conclude the fall semester onsite while 40% of our students will pause remote learning from home during the upcoming winter break. With the start of the spring semester on January 6 and the resumption of some normalcy in our operations and programs, we expect more students to return to in-person learning at school.

    Despite change and challenge, district begins to resume normalcy (10/15/2020)

    Despite a few early hiccups, and taking into consideration the myriad of challenges presented by the pandemic, I am pleased how well the 2020-2021 school year has started. On October 13, we began the second of four grading periods of the school year. Approximately, 60% of our total enrollment is onsite while 40% of our students continue to learn at home. No matter the location, we will continue to do everything possible to support learning for all students.

    My name is Paul Norton, and I have the honor and privilege to serve as Superintendent of the Lake Travis Independent School District. I know I have some big shoes to fill, and he reminds me they are size 13 and a half to be exact. But all joking aside, Dr. Brad Lancaster did a phenomenal job ahead of me, and I have the unique opportunity to build upon the rich tradition of excellence that defines LTISD.
