2018-2019 School Calendar
NISD Seeks Feedback on the 2018-2019 School Calendar
Northwest ISD requests community feedback on the 2018-2019 school calendar options by completing an online survey. The Northwest ISD District Education Improvement Council (DEIC), made up of parents, teachers and community members, develops and submits calendar option(s) for the upcoming school year with additional input from staff, parents and community to the NISD Board of Trustees. The DEIC is providing two options for the 2018-2019 school calendar. Calendar Option One is similar to the current school year’s calendar, includes a 440-minute school day, with three bad weather days built into the calendar. Calendar Option Two is a 445-minute school day, adding five minutes to the end of the instructional day and the first day of school would begin on a Tuesday instead of a Monday.
The online survey begins January 23 and will be available through February 5. Community and staff may go to http://www.nisdtx.org/calendarvote to view the calendars, a list of frequently asked questions and to complete the survey with their preferred calendar option. Results will be reviewed by the DEIC in February. The board is expected to vote on the final school calendars prior to Spring Break.
