Killeen ISD Amended The 20-21 Academic Schedule
Killeen ISD students are expected to return to school tomorrow.
After a meeting with the board of trustees Tuesday, it was voted for students to return to all Killeen ISD campuses on February 25th. The decision came after the 20- 21 academic calendar was amended.
A press release was issued stating "This evening the Board of Trustees voted to amend the current Academic Calendar for the 2020-2021 school year because of the winter storm closure. The district will be applying for all available waivers from TEA for the missed school days. District Leadership and Trustees felt it was important to maintain Spring Break and not extend the school year, therefore several changes have been made and we ask that you look at the revised attached calendar very closely.
The board voted to convert two previously designated student holidays/teacher planning days (Monday, March 22 and Friday, April 12) as Remote Learning/Teacher Planning days and revert four Early Out days (March 5, March 12, April 16, and April 30) to full normal school days in an effort to recoup the missed instructional time. The district will also utilize Friday, April 2 as a Remote Learning Day, as designated on our original calendar. This Friday, February 26, 2021, will not be an Early Release Day."
50 out of the 53 campuses have been cleared to open pending the water situation. In person and virtual learning students are required to attend class.
