To account for February’s unexpected winter weather days, the Killeen Independent School District board of trustees will vote on a revised school calendar Tuesday.
Three days in February — Feb. 3, 4, and 24 — Killeen ISD made the decision to close due to “inclement weather and hazardous road conditions” caused by two separate winter storms.
At Tuesday’s school board meeting, trustees will decide how the district will make up the lost time.
The district’s academic calendar was built to provide 75,600 minutes of instruction, which allows minutes to be added as necessary to compensate for minutes of instruction lost due to school closures caused by disaster, flood, and extreme weather conditions, according to Tuesday’s school board agenda.
“To make up the remaining minutes, the district is extending the student early release on Friday, March 11, by 30 minutes, and proposes to utilize the student holiday of Monday, March 21, as a bad weather make up day,” the agenda states.
Other items to be discussed during Tuesday’s meeting include:
- Keys Inside Student Development: 3D printers at elementary campuses
- Progress monitoring report for academic achievement plans
- General fund budget fiscal year 2023
- Sheridan transportation facility expansion project
