Following a request from the Texas Education Agency to consider alternate calendars for the fall semester, Longview Independent School District is asking our parents and staff which starting date they prefer for the 2020-21 school year.

  • Option 1 is to keep the current calendar (approved March 18th by the board), with a start date of Aug. 17th.

  • Option 2 is a hybrid model with a slightly earlier start on Aug. 10th, and a longer mid-term break December-January. 

  • Option 3 is a suggestion from the TEA to start school on Aug. 3rd, with school breaks scheduled throughout the year.

Greg Abbott, and local officials. Please keep in mind that any information related to the 2020-2021 calendar is subject to change, and we will keep you informed on our district website, social media, and through all-calls/emails.
