2020-21 KIPP TEXAS-Houston Academic Calendar
All KIPP Texas Public Schools will start the school year 100% virtual; classes will begin on Monday, August 24, 2020. Our last day of school will be adjusted based on the later start date and the instructional minutes requirements from the TEA. The calendar committee is working through the details now; we will have the school year end date for you in the next week or so.
The spread of COVID-19 is concerning for us all and yet learning must not stop for our #CONNECTors. As a result, our hope is to return to in-person learning with a staggered, phased-in start, beginning October 12 for families who choose in-person learning for the second nine-week instructional cycle. In the next few weeks, we will reevaluate what options we provide families for in-person learning, based on the new allowances by the TEA.
We share our anticipated start date for transitioning to in-person instruction because we know CONNECTors, their families, and our Team & Family need a date to be able to plan.
However, please note that this date may change based on the development of the virus over the next three months and changing TEA mandates. We will continue to work closely with local health authorities to protect the health and safety of our CONNECTors, Little and Big, and will amend this decision if necessary.
