Update on Bad Weather Make-up Day
Austin ISD appreciates the cooperation of staff members, students and families during the inclement weather days earlier this year, which caused district-wide cancelations and late-starts at AISD schools and district offices.
When school is closed because of bad weather, the state requires school districts to make up only the first two days that school was canceled. AISD campuses and district offices completed one make-up day on Feb. 17 and another make-up day was scheduled for June 6.
AISD’s Board of Trustees have approved a revised school calendar for this current year to make June 6 a Staff Development Day and to designate March 3, which is already a regular, full instructional day, to serve as a bad weather make-up day. The Texas Education Agency has also approved a waiver that, along with the board-approved revised calendar, enables these changes. This means students will not have to attend school on June 6. The second weather make-up day will instead be March 3, which was already a regular school day for students.
Based on feedback from staff members and the community, the district is pleased to be able to provide a solution that does not require students and staff members to attend school on other student/staff holidays.
AISD appreciates your flexibility in implementing this resolution for the inclement weather make-up day.
