Two 2019-2020 Draft Calendars were posted on the CISD website and provided to campuses to share with their staff and community. During this time, over 2,100 comments were submitted through the District’s website. The DLPDMC reviewed the comments and suggestions received from staff, parents, and community and recommended Calendar Draft 2 with a March 9-13 Spring Break as the 2019-2020 School Calendar. The earlier spring break selection was influenced by the academic calendars of Lone Star College, Sam Houston State University, Texas A&M and several nearby school districts.
In his presentation to the Board of Trustees, Dr. Chris Hines noted that features the DLPDMC discussed and would likely consider in developing the 2020-2012 School Calendar include making the November election day a staff development day and ending the school year before Memorial Day.
