LISD trustees to select first day of school, breaks for 2019-20 at Dec. 10 meeting


The school district is expected to vote on the 2019-20 academic calendar at its Dec. 10 meeting.

Prior to the meeting, the district is allowing the community to vote on two options for next year’s calendar. The online survey is available until Nov. 30.

The calendars have several similarities but differ on the first day of school.

The first option has school starting Aug. 14, and option 2 has students starting school Aug. 13.

Another difference in the calendars is spring break.

March 9-13 would be spring break under option 1, and March 16-20 would be spring break if the district selects option 2.

Under both options final exams would be complete prior to winter break and the last day of school would be before Memorial Day, which is May 27.

The two calendar options were proposed by the Academic Calendar Committee, which was formed with more than 30 members representing all campus levels and feeder patterns in the district.

Members included teachers, parents, community members and district administrators.

The committee presented two options to trustees at the Nov. 12 board meeting.
