Texas Government Code Section 552.01

Rights and Responsibilities

LISD Policy

Due to the pandemic and the CDC’s ongoing recommendations, the District has determined only a skeleton crew will be working until at least April 3. The attorney general does not count skeleton crew days observed by a governmental body as business days for the purpose of calculating deadlines under the Texas Public Information Act. Therefore, any requests received while the District continues to operate with only a skeleton crew will be processed upon the District’s full staff returning to work. Please note, the dates requiring a skeleton crew may change or be altered as the information and decisions made related to the pandemic are constantly changing. We appreciate your understanding and patience at this time. If you have any questions, please contact Brad Maxwell at maxwellb@leonardisd.net
