CHINA SPRING, Texas — China Spring ISD Board of Trustees approved the move to a four-day school week during a board meeting on Monday, March 20.
According to the newly adopted calendar, Fridays are the days of the week in which China Spring campuses will be closed. However, not every week will be a four-day week.
It appears students will have at least one full week of classes in the months of October, December, February, April and May.
The 2023-2024 school year is set to begin Aug. 7, 2023 and end on May 30, 2024.
The school district says the move to four-day weeks will result in better recruitment and retention of staff, reduced absences, increased planning time for teachers and a reduced need for substitutes.
According to China Spring ISD, the state's instructional minute requirement of 75,600 minutes will still be met. Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring breaks will still be similar lengths to past school years.
