There will be no virtual or in-person classes for students on Tuesday, Nov. 3, which is Election Day. Tuesday, Nov. 3 is now a student holiday and virtual staff professional development day.
The student holiday and staff professional development day scheduled on Wednesday, February 24 has been changed to Tuesday, Nov. 3. All students and staff should report to school as normal on Wednesday, Feb. 24.
Staff development previously scheduled for Wednesday, Feb 24 will now take place virtually on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
Teachers and administrators may choose from one of the following three options for staff professional development:
District pre-approved staff development (www.houstonisd.org/eLearning)
Campus or other staff development approved by their Area Superintendent
Comp day for teachers or campus administrators who have accumulated the required number of staff development hours as approved by manager (Only applicable to the Nov. 3 staff development day).
Moving the Feb. 24 student holiday and staff development day to Nov. 3 provides greater opportunity for HISD staff and eligible students to exercise their civic duty and vote on Election Day.
