CCISD changing 2018-2019 school calendar, asking for feedback

Posted: Updated:

Corpus Christi Independent School District is considering making their school days shorter and possibly shortening its Thanksgiving break.

C.C.I.S.D. is making changes to its school calendar next year and they want feedback from parents.     
It has set up an online survey for parents to fill out.

The district is offering three options. All of the calendars are designed to meet the 75,600 minutes mandated by the state of Texas. The calendars shorten the school day and some shorten Thanksgiving break.

Calendar 1: Start times are ten minutes earlier  (7:50 a.m. and 8:50 a.m.). Release times 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.  School day is 430 minutes. This calendar has a shortened break for Thanksgiving and a shortened Winter Break for teachers.  Students attend school for 175 days.

Calendar 2:  Start times are ten minutes earlier (7:50 a.m. and 8:50 a.m.). Release times 3:03 p.m. and 4:03 p.m. School day is 433 minutes. This calendar has a full week break for Thanksgiving and a shortened Winter Break for teachers.  Students attend school for 173 days.

Calendar 3:  Start times are the same as 2017-2018 (8 a.m. and 9 a.m.). Release times are 3:10 p.m. and 4:10 p.m.  School day is 430 minutes.  This calendar has a shortened Thanksgiving Break and a longer Winter Break for teachers and students.  Students attend school for 175 days.

School board members will vote on the matter during one of their upcoming board meetings.
Parents have until Wednesday, March 21st at 4:30 p.m. to fill out that online survey.
