With Friday, June 18, being the last day of school, we are already looking forward to an outstanding 2021–2022 school year that kicks off in August. These are four of the most important things parents should know about next school year.
- Dallas ISD will be back to in-person learning, districtwide. We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to in-person learning in the fall.
- Other than 4th-6th grade students enrolled at the Dallas Hybrid Preparatory at Stephen J. Hay, there will be no virtual option for students. The Texas Legislature did not pass the virtual bill that would allow districts to offer virtual options to students at this time.
- Dallas ISD will keep nine-week grading periods next school year as part of a broader effort to help mitigate learning loss and further support students. Compared to the traditional six-week grading period, a nine-week grading period gives students an additional three weeks to master a subject before receiving a final report card The nine-week grading period also reduces the number of district common assessments, giving students more time in the classroom to learn. Students will still take the state required STAAR and End of Course (EOC) exams next school year.
- There are three different Dallas ISD 2021-2022 school year calendars. Visit dallasisd.org/schoolcalendars to see which calendar your school has.
Have a great summer, and we look forward to seeing everyone back in-person in August!
