The Galena Park ISD Board of Trustees has approved the academic calendar for the 2016-2017 school year.
Please note: Because of a change in state law, the Texas Education Code no longer defines 180 days of instruction as an acceptable school year. Instead, the requirement has been changed to at least 75,600 minutes of instruction.
"The rationale was to give districts more flexibility for making up missed instructional days," said DeEtta Culbertson, a spokeswoman for the Texas Education Agency. This is a way for the district to not have to add additional days unless they want to." For more details, please click on the Texas Education Agency link at http://tea.texas.gov/.
