Posted 12/14/2017 09:01AM

The Board of Trustees approved the 2018 – 2019 School Calendar at their meeting on December 11, 2017. As a continuous improvement school district, stakeholder input is a huge part of our process.

The process for creating the calendar includes input from our internal and external stakeholders. The calendar committee, including HEB ISD faculty and staff along with parents and community members, met earlier this fall and created two calendar options. Based on the huge amount of feedback received, a third calendar option was created. This third option addresses the desire to have a full week off at Thanksgiving, as well as a Winter Break of two full weeks. The District reopened the calendar survey for stakeholders to provide additional input between Option 2 and the new Option 3.

Option 3 was the obvious choice based on all of the information we received from our community and our staff. (72% of Community in favor of Option 3 and 82% of District Staff in favor of Option 3)

As a reminder, the District must consider the following parameters when creating the school calendar:

  • The District must develop a calendar which includes a minimum of 75,600 instructional minutes and requires additional minutes to account for two inclement weather days for students.
  • Teachers are on a 187-day contract. Therefore, two inclement weather days must be designated on the teacher calendar to be used if needed.
  • Graduation dates are set years in advance in order to secure the venue, which can accommodate the numbers of family and friends wanting to attend. Therefore, this graduation date dictates the last day for student attendance.
