Longview ISD Board of Trustees approved the 2018-19 District Calendar during their Dec. 11 regular meeting.

Superintendent Dr. James Wilcox said state legislation prevents schools from starting prior to the fourth Monday in August.

"Obviously, we want to be sensitive to family schedules, especially during the holiday months, but we have limited flexibility due to the legislature," he said. "That said, we feel like this calendar provides the most accommodation for our students, staff, and their families."
