The calendar meets the minimum 75,600 instructional minutes required for students, includes the contract length required for staff and meets other parameters set by the Texas Education Agency, including state assessment dates.

Thank you to the committee that worked on the initial base calendar that resulted in the drafts presented to families, staff, and students for their feedback through two rounds of surveys. In addition, staff gathered information from calendars of neighboring districts. The calendar that received the majority of votes from the GCISD Community was the Draft Calendar C presented in the surveys.

*Now that the GCISD Instructional Calendar has been approved, iUniversity Prep and Collegiate Academy will develop calendars specialized to the specifications of their programs, and those will be shared with their students and families.
