School Calendar & Bell Schedules

On July 27, 2020, the AISD Board of Trustees voted to delay the start of instruction until Tuesday, September 1. The delay is not a direct response to the COVID-19 virus, but rather to the new challenges teachers and campus staff will face as a result of COVID-19. The postponed start helps to ensure adequate time for schools to prepare, allowing for a stronger, safer start for students and staff.

Based on the most recent TEA guidelines, AISD is committed to in-person, virtual, and possibly a hybrid instructional setting. (A hybrid model would be for high school students only.) Delaying the student start date helps staff devote more time to: 

  • Develop, educate and be able to execute individual campus procedures and protocols to support safety & health for all stakeholders
  • Learn and implement a new Learning Management System [LMS] required for virtual models
  • Standup two new instructional models (virtual and hybrid) on the same rigorous level as in-person instruction

With the exception of unforeseen circumstances, the delayed start will not result in the District having to extend the school year into June.

Campus hours for the 2020-2021 AISD School Year have been revised to reflect the following:

Level Start Time End Time 2020/2021 Additional Minutes
High School 8:05 a.m. 4:03 p.m. 18 minutes
Middle School 8:00 a.m. 3:50 p.m. 10 minutes
Elementary [A Campuses] 7:55 a.m. 3:35 p.m. 20 minutes
Elementary [B Campuses] 7:50 a.m. 3:30 p.m. 20 minutes

These additional minutes will provide the District approximately 10 days for inclement weather and other crisis related closures.
