Changing School Start Dates for 2020-2021
Last week, TEA released guidelines on how to change the school calendar and start date amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
TEA announced school districts may start school prior to the fourth May in August (TEC Sec. 25.0811) through a District of Innovation Plan or a Year-Round System designation. The following PDF breaks down how schools districts could engage in this option.
As the 2019-2020 school year begins to wind down, school districts are starting to look toward the 2020-2021 school year and what that will look like. In addition to the PDF on changing school start dates provided in the left column, TEA has provided a second PDF that discusses guidelines and considerations for school districts in adjusting the 2020-2021 school year in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
