During the March Regular Board Meeting of the Flour Bluff ISD Board of Trustees, the Board approved the 2018-2019 Official School Calendar. Next year’s calendar includes a full week off for Thanksgiving, 11 days off for Winter Break and a week for Spring Break. The first day of school will be Monday, August 27. The last day of school for students is Thursday, May 30, 2019.
The FBISD Calendar Committee began working on calendar options in January. Following two meetings, the Committee narrowed down two calendar options for parents, students, employees and community members to view and provide feedback. Calendar “A” had an additional day off for both students and staff during Winter Break. It also had teachers returning for the new school year one-day earlier. Calendar “B” had 10 days off for Winter Break and staff returning for the 2018-2019 school year one day later in August. Calendar “B” also had the fall semester ending prior to the beginning of Winter Break. Both calendars had January 21, 2019, as a regular holiday for students and a weather make-up day for staff, if needed.
The results from the input surveys and input from the Calendar Committee were provided to the Superintendent who recommended to the Board of Trustees “Calendar A” as the preferred calendar option.
The Board of Trustees voted 7-0 and approved “Calendar A”. Click here to view the Flour Bluff ISD 2018-2019 Official School Calendar.
