The Round Rock ISD Board of Trustees made the decision on the next 2 school year calendars at their board meeting last night. Here are the results.
The Round Rock ISD Board of Trustees approved the academic calendars for 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 at its regular meeting on February 15, 2018.
The community had the opportunity to review and provide feedback on two options for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 calendars from Jan.19 to Feb.4. Upon review of community input by the calendar committee it was determined that Option 2, with an adjustment to the end date of the first and second six weeks period, would be presented to the Board of Trustees for approval.
The calendar committee, comprised of District and campus administrators and teachers, as well as elementary and secondary parents, designed the calendars in alignment with the most recent calendars and with consideration of feedback provided by community members.

- Both calendars have a full week of Thanksgiving
- Both calendars have 2 full weeks & 3 teacher/staff work days at Winter Break
- Both calendars have a full week of Spring Break
STAFF DEVELOPMENT/TEACHER WORK DAYS
- Both calendars feature two 4-day weekends for students in October & February. The Monday & Tuesday are both staff development/teacher work days.
BAD WEATHER DAYS
- The building of two bad weather days into the calendar through banked minutes. If a third or fourth day is needed, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) allows for a district to apply for a waiver. With banked days and the waiver taken into account, no designation of bad weather days is needed.
