GEORGETOWN ISD After a two-year hiatus, Georgetown ISD held its annual State of the District on March 9. Superintendent Fred Brent led two sessions discussing the impact COVID-19 had on the district. “A lot of unanticipated things have happened since we last met in February 2020,” Brent said. “But a lot of good things happened in GISD and in our community.” According to the district, a total of 2,201,786 free meals were served to GISD students during the 2020-21 school year and more than 10,000 meals were delivered to students’ homes. “The world shut down,” Brent said. “I was blown away by the men and women that made sure that [the meals] happened.” Brent applauded that GISD provided 2,768 COVID-19 tests to sta and students in three months. “It was a quick response, and I am so thankful for their work,” Brent said. With remote learning becoming a big factor for all educational organizations, GISD supplied 12,500 new laptops and tablets in 2021 for instructional use and 1,100 free hotspots for students without internet access. In total, GISD had 58.5 days of remote learning in 2020-21. Brent also celebrated the dedication that GISD teachers, operational and leadership sta showed in the pandemic.
