Dallas ISD Board of Trustees approves changes to school year calendar


During the July 23 called board meeting, the Dallas Independent School District’s Board of Trustees approved several changes to the 2020-21 school year calendar.

The approved changes to the calendar, which you can see here, are:

  • The first day of school moves from Aug. 17 to Sept. 8.
  • The last day of school moves from May 27, 2021, to June 18, 2021
  • Previously planned holidays in October are removed due to the cancellation of the State Fair.
  • Tuesday, November 3, 2020, is added as a holiday.
  • Grading periods are increased from six-week to nine-week periods.

The COVID-19 threat closer to the start of school will determine whether the district offers online learning only when school first starts or have the option of in-person or online learning. Safety reentry materials can be found at https://www.dallasisd.org/reentry.
