The Board of School Trustees approved the 2018-2019 School Calendar. Under the district’s designation as a TEA District of Innovation, per HB 1842, the calendar reflects changes that are intended to drive more effective learning and the desires of our local community.
School districts are no longer mandated to hold class on a designated number of days, but for a specific number of required instructional minutes. The 2018-2019 calendar exceeds the required number of instructional minutes (75,600) required by HB 2610.
Daily start and end times include:
Elementary schools 7:40 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Middle schools 8:15 a.m. – 3:35 p.m.
High schools 8:50 a.m. – 4:10 p.m.
The 2018-2019 School Calendar features a start date for freshman (Class of 2022) across the district beginning class on Tuesday, Aug. 14 for Freshman First Day. The official first day of school for all students is Wednesday, Aug. 15.
