2019-2020 Calendar Process
Humble ISD listens to and values all input. Parents and Humble ISD employees have been invited to participate in a survey regarding their preference for Option A, Option B, or Option C Calendars for next school year through a unique link sent to their email address.
This survey is open through Feb. 3, 2019. Results will be considered and a recommended calendar for the 2019-2020 school year is expected to be presented to the Board of Trustees for approval on Feb. 12, 2019.
Q. Will athletics, fine arts, and extracurricular continue during breaks?
Families should be aware that middle and high school students with extracurricular commitments may be expected to participate in games, practices, rehearsals, performances or activities during a break. In-season sports continue during breaks.
Q. On Option B and Option C, there are dates in October and February that are marked as Student and Teacher Holiday/Administrative Workdays. Who is off? Who works?
Students are off.
Employees whose calendar is 209 days or less are off. (Teachers, for example, have a 187-day calendar.) Employees whose calendar is more than 209 days are scheduled to work. (Principals and Administration Building employees, for example, have a 226 day calendar.) If these employees need to be off these weeks, they would follow the normal procedure for requesting time off through the use of their vacation/personal days.
Q. When are the comp days?
Campus staff who complete professional development hours in the summer/off contract would have comp days on:
Option A: Feb. 17 and April 13
Option B: Aug. 1 and 2 (Not be required to report to work until Aug. 5)
Option C: June 1 and 2
Q. On Option B, why do the teachers have to come back at the end of the year and what will teachers be doing June 1-4?
Learning Retreats June 1-4 are the completion of the last four days of campus staff 187-day work calendar. Texas requires teachers’ calendars to be at least 187 days. On June 1 teachers will submit grades and close out the school year on their campus. In response to suggestions made on the survey, the Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Learning Team will partner with campuses to create learning retreats from June 2-4 similar to the Power of Possibilities experience.
