Starting in Fall of the 2103-2014 school year, all LISD high schools will be going to “closed campus” lunches. Students will no longer be allowed to leave campus at lunch and must remain on campus during lunch hours. Sharp said that this decision came primarily as a result of safety concerns for the students, such as preventing traffic accidents and knowing where students are at all times.

Although the decision was initially unpopular with students, LISD plans to redesign campus cafeterias to resemble more of a college’s student union building, including the addition of study areas and televisions. There will also be multiple food vendors, so students will have more of a selection on campus. LISD was one of the few reaming school districts in the area that allows open campus lunches.
