Fort Bend ISD is accepting feedback through Nov. 17 on their proposed 2020-2021 school calendars.
The district has put forward two potential calendars, both of which resemble the calendar for the current school year, the district said in a press release.
Key similarities between the two proposed calendars include the first day of school being Aug. 1; a Fort Bend County Fair Day holiday Sep. 25; the full week of Thanksgiving off; two full weeks of Christmas vacation; observing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 18; and the last day of school being May 26.
Calendar A has a Fall holiday Oct. 12, while Calendar B has that vacation day Oct. 30.
The other difference between the calendars is the dates of winter break. Calendar A has Dec. 17 as the last school day before winter break, with Jan. 5 as the first day of the new semester after winter break Calendar option B has Dec. 18 as the last school day before winter break and Jan. 6 as the first day back.
Survey results will be shared with the district’s calendar committee before a final calendar is submitted to the Board of Trustees for approval.
