Monday, February 20, changed to full instructional day
To meet state requirements for instructional time, Northwest ISD will have classes on Monday, February 20, following the recent winter storm school closures. Northwest ISD’s academic calendars include enough minutes to absorb up to two days of school closures. Because the district closed all five days from January 30 to February 3, it will have to add additional instructional minutes to account for further missed school time.
The district will await guidance from the Texas Education Agency if additional school days could be considered for a waiver before further changes. If TEA does not grant waivers for missed instructional time, Northwest ISD will inform families of additional changes to the 2022-2023 school year calendar in the coming weeks.
