District Flood Make-Up Days Information - June 3 Instructional Day and Extended Days Beginning May 2
Dr. Cain learned that his request for two additional waiver days was denied by the Texas Education Agency. The plan for making up the days was approved at the Thursday, April 28 Board meeting.
1) Friday, June 3, is now a student instructional day; 2) Beginning Monday, May 2, the school day is extended by 18 instructional minutes, five minutes before school and 13 minutes after school.
Start and end times will be posted on the campus websites. Morning bus schedules are not altered as the students typically arrive in advance of the new start time. Afternoon schedules will run approximately 15 minutes later than normal.
The Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) Express will be a re-fitted traveling RV style trailer complete with unique activities and experiments for all student age groups. The STEAM Express will visit campuses and communities year round beginning in the fall of 2014. Certified teachers will share exciting and hands-on learning experiences from the STEAM Express that will allow students to travel outside of the normal classroom.
