Attention Parents and Students:
House Bill (HB) 2610, passed by the 84th Texas Legislature, amends Texas Education Code (TEC), §25.081, by striking language requiring 180 days of instruction and replacing this language with language requiring districts and charter schools to provide at least 75,600 minutes of instruction, including intermissions and recess. The bill also allows school districts and charter schools to add minutes as necessary to compensate for minutes of instruction lost due to school closures caused by disaster, flood, extreme weather conditions, fuel curtailment, or another calamity.
In reviewing our records for the required 75,600 minutes for school, we find we are short 470 minutes to meet that requirement. May 18th, 2018 is a scheduled Tutorial/Attendance day. We will be using this day as our make-up day for the loss of the 470 minutes of instruction.
Friday, May18th will be a regular school day for all students.
