Wife, Mother, Student, La Toya Hart

1/14/19

When La Toya Hart—a Sherman, Texas, native—decided she wanted to get her college degree, she knew there was only one place she wanted to attend: Texas Woman’s University.

A wife of 17 years and mother of two sons, La Toya had been an early childhood educator and once her youngest received a diagnosis of ADHD, they made the decision to have her stay home and homeschool him while running an in-home daycare.

Annual Report

Approved by Keller ISD Board members on Feb. 8, 2018, the 2018-19 Keller ISD school calendar is now available.

“The 2018-19 calendar was developed by a committee composed of teachers, parents, community members, District administrators, and support staff,” according to the official Keller ISD website. “The committee worked collaboratively to design a calendar that is conducive to student learning while also meeting policy requirements.”

The first day of school will be Wednesday, August 15, 2018, with the last day of school falling on Thursday, May 23, 2019.

May 24, 2019 would be a teacher workday ahead of the Class of 2019 Graduation day on May 25, 2019.

Like the 2017-18 calendar, the 2018-19 calendar puts Fall and Spring Semester finals before Winter Break and Graduation Day.

2018-19 Final Board Approved

2018-19 Keller ISD Holidays

Winter Break will be held December 20, 2018, through January 7, 2019; and Spring Break will be March 11-15, 2019.

Thanksgiving Break – November 19-23, 2018

Thursday, May 23, 2019 (PreK-12th grade)

Developing the Calendar

“In developing the 2018-19 calendar, the Calendar Committee took a number of things into consideration, including:

  • The Texas Education Agency’s required number of instructional minutes;
  • Teacher contract days and the placement of professional development and major holidays breaks;
  • Desire for an October “mini-break;”
  • Parental custodial rights and components of the standard Texas divorce decree;
  • Ending the first semester before Winter Break
  • Compatibility with other surrounding school districts and Tarrant County College; and
  • Additional input received from campuses and community members.

The calendar features 76,455 minutes of instructional time, 855 of which can be used in place of lost instruction due to school closures caused by inclement weather,” Keller ISD organizers stated.

  • Parental custodial rights and components of the standard Texas divorce decree;
  • Ending the first semester before Winter Break
  • Compatibility with other surrounding school districts and Tarrant County College; and
