Texas state law provides the first day of school cannot start earlier than the fourth Monday in August. This year, that would be 28th. However, at the April 10, 2017 special called Board meeting, the district presented its District of Innovation plan for final approval. One of the benefits of this approved plan is that it now enables the school district to have flexibility in establishing its academic calendar.
The attached approved calendar allows for great opportunity for professional development for teachers as well as an earlier start date for students.
The first day of school begins Wednesday, August 16, 2017, with the school year ending May 25, 2018.
