WFISD Adopts 2016-2017 School Calendar

WICHITA FALLS, TX - There are considerable changes to the 2016-2017 Wichita Falls I.S.D calendar.
The board approved the calendar proposed by a committee of district personnel, parents and community members. 
The biggest change is in regards to the length.
In the past, legislature required a school year to last 180 days for students.
That was adjusted last legislative session to 75,600 minutes, which comes out to 174 days.
Other changes include aligning their Spring Break with Midwestern State and Vernon College and aligning holidays with parents time off work.
