KISD Changes 20-21 Calendar
Killeen ISD Superintendent Dr. John Craft and the Board of Trustees announced changes to the 20-21 academic calendar to include 7 additional early out days, and 7 new remote learning days for students at the October 27 board meeting. The changes provide educators additional time to plan and prepare lessons.
On remote learning days, students will learn online at home or have the option to go to their home campus to receive instructional support. Students that are present on campus on remote learning days, must bring their district-issued device with them or are encouraged to bring a personal device if they have one available.
The following Fridays will now be Student Remote Learning Days: November 6, December 4, January 22, February 19, March 26, April 23, and May 21.
All employees are required to report as scheduled on these days.
Campuses will be open for students who do not have access to technology or the internet. Prek-3 and Prek-4 students will be provided with assignments that can be completed without technology. If a student does not complete the work for the assigned remote day, the student will be counted absent.
District Administrators will be assigned to campuses to provide students instructional support on the remote learning days allowing teachers to focus on planning.
The district also added the following early dismissal days to the current calendar: January 15, January 29, February 5, February 26, March 5, April 16, and April 30. All campuses will dismiss two hours early.
In the event of bad weather, February 15 and April 2 are designated as bad weather make-up days. If additional time is needed to meet the required minutes, April 16 and April 30 could become normal school days instead of early outs.
KISD will continue to serve breakfast and lunch on remote learning days, as well as provide transportation for eligible riders.
The last day of school for students remains Thursday, May 27, 2021.
