School Board approves 2020-21 District Calendar

On Monday night, the Board of Trustees approved the 2020-21 District Calendar.  As part of the District’s usual calendar development process, it was shared with the Education Improvement Council, which includes campus and community representatives, and the Parent Teacher Roundtable, which includes parents from each school.  Both groups approved the calendar.

A downloadable/printable copy of the calendar is available on the District website at:

Next year’s calendar is nearly identical to this year’s with one exception: Spring Break is scheduled one week later (March 15-19, 2021) to match San Jacinto College’s calendar.  Our neighboring districts have also indicated that they intend to follow SJC’s lead in this matter.

There are some very important reasons for our Spring Break to match that of the college and our neighboring districts.  First, we have partnerships with SJC involving students, and it would create a difficulty for them if the Spring Break holidays don’t match.  Also, many of our employees live in our nearby districts, so not having the same Spring Break could create a significant inconvenience for them.
