Williamson County Schools will be in session August 21 during the solar eclipse.
Teachers across the district are incorporating the eclipse into their lesson plans through activities for the students.
“Many of our teachers have gone through professional development this summer, where they’ve gotten ideas of ways they can incorporate the eclipse into their curriculum,” said WCS Assistant Superintendent of TLA Tim Gaddis. “They’re tying it to our science scope and sequence.”
The schools will be provided viewing glasses for all the students, and students in grades 1-12 will be outdoors when the eclipse takes place.
“There’s a lot of choreography that has to take place to make sure students are viewing the eclipse safely,” Gaddis said. “I think we’re going to have a wonderful day of activities for all of our students.”
