HISD has adopted and posted its calendar for the 2019-20 school year, which includes a new spring holiday to honor “Latino empowerment.”
The school year will run from Aug. 26, 2019 through May 29, 2020, with a fall holiday set for Oct. 9 and a holiday intended for community service on March 30 to honor Mexican-American icons Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta.
June 1 has been designated as a weather make-up day, if needed.
The calendar was passed by trustees after feedback from the District Advisory Committee and a panel of principals, union representatives and departments from across the district.
