BISD Board Approves 2017-18 Calendar
Posted on 03/27/2017
2017-18 CalendarOn February 21, the Brazosport Independent School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved the instructional calendar for the 2017-18 school year.  Since Brazosport ISD is obtaining the District of Innovation designation from the Texas Education Agency, BISD gained local control of the instructional calendar.  The flexibilities allowed from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) through the District of Innovation designation gave local control of the school start date and required school day minutes.

The 2017-18 school year will begin on Thursday, August 17 and will be able to end school before Memorial Day in May.  It also allows the district to create more balanced semesters, with 84 days in the fall semester and 88 days in the spring semester.  The calendar includes three professional development days, two exchange days, a full week for Thanksgiving and Spring Break, with more than two weeks for Christmas break.  Students will also have time off for Labor Day, Veteran's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Good Friday.

The calendar includes:
  • Two early release days for all students - December 22 and May 24
  • Two early release days for high schools only - December 21 and May 23
  • The calendar provides staff with eight contract days prior to the start of school.
