Board of Trustees Approves Updated 2020-2021 Instructional Calendar
October 15, 2020
The Aledo ISD Board of Trustees approved an updated 2020-2021 Instructional Calendar Thursday night, turning three calendar days into teacher work days/student holidays.
With the newly approved calendar, October 30, November 13 and December 18 (previously a half-day) are now full student holidays that will give teachers and staff an opportunity to plan and prepare for instruction, communicate with students and parents, grade assignments and input grades, and create and load content in the learning management systems (for both remote and quarantined students).
“It is good to see everyone continue to be adaptable,” Trustee David Lear said. “This will be good for our teachers and in helping them prepare.”
This instructional calendar change will be accomplished by using minutes already built into the calendar, and it will not extend the school year. Camp Fire, which hosts after-school care for Aledo ISD elementary campuses, will offer paid child care for any Aledo ISD student in grades K-6 on those dates.
