The WSISD District Planning Committee (DPC), which consists of teachers, administrators, parents, community members and other school employees, developed the Proposed 2021-22 District Academic Calendar. Parents and staff members are encouraged to provide input regarding the proposed calendar Jan. 19 through Jan. 25. The DPC will review recommendations/feedback provided by staff and parents, and the Board of Trustees will adopt the official calendar in February.
Additional Minutes in School Day: For the 2020-21 school year, the district increased the school day by 30 additional minutes. This ensured that students met the minute requirement in the event of a closure due to COVID-19. Unless WSISD receives guidance from TEA recommending that school district's bank additional minutes in 2021-22, WSISD students will not attend school an additional 30 minutes. The district will provide revised school hours at a later date.
Regarding the banked minutes for the 2020-21 school year, district officials will provide more details in late March (once inclement weather season and the potential for closures concludes).
