July 21, 2020—The CFISD Board of Trustees approved the recommendation to modify the 2020-2021 instructional calendar during a special-called meeting on July 21.
The newly approved calendar pushes back the first day of instruction to Tuesday, Sept. 8. The later start date allows the district more time to monitor and evaluate the current health conditions in Harris County related to COVID-19. Additionally, with the recent authorization of the district to implement 1:1 technology for students, the delayed start date will provide more time for the district to distribute Chromebooks and internet devices to students with a demonstrated need.
Other changes include the modification of professional development days for teachers and a return to duty of Friday, Aug. 14.
The last day of school is scheduled for June 3; however, weekdays from June 7-30 are reserved as closure make-up days in case additional days are needed as a result of COVID-19 or other natural disasters.
