After reviewing surrounding district calendars, the information provided by the Texas Education Agency, and input from the calendar committee, the district has determined that it will operate under the approved 2020- 2021 academic calendar.
“The calendar process we used this year took into account several levels of feedback from our stakeholders. When developing the calendar we weighed in district needs and alignment to our goals,” said Aldine ISD Chief Communications Officer Sheleah D. Reed, APR. “We believe the calendar we have will allow us to address the needs of students.”
The calendar which was voted on by trustees Feb. 11, has the first day of instruction set for Monday, Aug. 17. The last day of school is May 27. The calendar exceeds the state’s requirements for the minimum number of minutes. Those minutes can be used to accommodate school cancellations.
Other key dates are:
Thanksgiving Break – Nov. 23-27
End of the First Semester – Dec. 17
Midwinter Break – Dec. 18-Jan. 5 (students), Dec. 18-Jan. 2 (teachers)
Spring Break – March 15-19
Last Day of School for Teachers – May 28
