District Announces Make-Up Days for January Closings
Posted on 02/07/2014
logoPasadena ISD officials have announced make-up days due to weather conditions earlier last month. To restore instructional time for students, schools will now be open Friday, April 18 and Monday, May 26.

The Texas Education Agency requires districts to include two make-up days to meet the state’s mandatory number of instructional days in a school year. In addition, days set aside as half-days may not be used as make-up days under the TEA guidelines.

“The only other options available are the Spring Break holiday or extending the school year additional days into June,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kirk Lewis said. “While we recognize fully that Good Friday and Memorial Day are not ideal ways for making up the lost instruction time, they seem to be the days that are least disruptive to family circumstances.”

Revisions to the current school calendar will be reflected pending the Board of Trustees meeting on February 25. For the latest updated information and district news, please visit the district website, Facebook and Twitter.
