DEPARTMENT:  Pre-K 4 SA

DEPARTMENT HEAD: Sarah Baray, Ph.D.

 

COUNCIL DISTRICT(S) IMPACTED:  Citywide

 

SUBJECT: 

2021-22 Academic Calendar

 

 

SUMMARY:

 

This item requests Board action to approve the Pre-K 4 SA 2021-22 academic calendar.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

 

Pre-K 4 SA works in partnership with local school districts (ISD) to serve San Antonio’s 4-year-olds. Each ISD sets its own academic calendar. Pre-K 4 SA reviewed the available ISD calendars before drafting the proposed Pre-K 4 SA 2021-22 academic calendar. The proposed calendar satisfies the Texas Education Agency requirement that full-day prekindergarten programs offer at least 75,600 minutes of instruction during the academic year. The proposed calendar sets Monday, August 16, 2021 as the first day of school and includes a half-day phase-in period prior to the first day to allow students to acclimate to the teacher/school/classroom through a smaller, more intentional approach. The school year will end on Thursday, May 26.

 

 

ISSUE:

 

This item requests Board action to approve the Pre-K 4 SA 2021-22 academic calendar.

 

 

ALTERNATIVES:

 

If the Board does not approve the proposed calendar, Pre-K 4 SA staff will need to develop a revised calendar, which would delay sharing with families and impact their ability to plan for the 2021-2022 academic year.

 

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

 

There is no fiscal impact associated with this item.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

 Staff recommends the Board approve the proposed 2021-22 academic year calendar.
