On February 19, the Brazosport Independent School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved the instructional calendar for the 2018-2019 school year. BISD created a local process of gathering input and feedback from campus staff, administrators, a District Educational Improvement Committee and an Instructional Calendar Committee.

The 2018-2019 school year will begin on August 15th and will end school before Memorial Day in May. It also allows the district to create more balanced semesters, with 84 days in the fall semester and 88 days in the spring semester. The calendar includes four professional development days during the school year, two exchange days, a full week for Thanksgiving and Spring Break, and more than two full weeks for Christmas break. Students will also have time off for Labor Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Good Friday, and the day following Easter.

Other calendar highlights include:

  • Two early release days for all students - December 20  and May 23.
  • Two early release days for high schools only - December 19 and May 22.   
  • The calendar provides campus staff with seven contract days prior to the start of school.
