Gov. Greg Abbott, on Tuesday, said he anticipates an announcement this week or next on the upcoming school year.
“It is my expectation to see students return to schools in a classroom setting — able to interact with teachers as well as able to interact with other students.”
He hopes students will also have the ability to participate in athletics and other activities.
Abbott recently spoke to college athletic directors about the best way to move forward.
“I had a telephone conference recently with all of the athletic directors for schools in the state of Texas,” Abbott says. Athletic directors should come up with their own strategies for their particular stadium including indoor stadiums, and present it to the doctors on his team.
