MISD Moves Up Last Day of School

Under new Texas state law, the duration of a school year is now counted as 75,600 minutes rather than 180 days.  Changing the way the state measures the school year has given school districts more flexibility  in how they make up for missed instructional days.

The Mansfield ISD school board, in collaboration with the Mansfield ISD District Educational Improvement Council (DEIC), has approved the following changes to the 2015-16 school year:

April 15- Full day student holiday (previously an early release day)

June 1 – Last day of school (full day)

June 2- Teacher work day

MISD Superintendent Dr. James Vaszauskas explained, “By making these changes, we would still be within the 75,600 minute requirement, but we think it would make our calendar flow a little bit easier.”
