AUSTIN (KXAN) — The vast majority of Central Texas school districts are now open for in-person learning and let parents decide if they want to send their students back to campus, or keep them at home.

We reached out to the largest school districts in our area to ask them how many children have returned, and how many are still learning from home.

The results vary drastically by district. Of the districts now open to students, two have as many as 80% on campus, while one has as few as 24%.

The following list appears in order of the school districts which have the greatest percentage of students still learning online to the districts with the fewest percentage of students learning online.
