House Bill 2610 FAQ’s

What is House Bill 2610?

HB 2610, passed by the 84th Texas Legislature, requires school districts to provide at least 75,600 minutes of instruction, rather than 180 days of instruction. By changing the way the school year is measured, it is meant to give districts more flexibility in how they make up for missed instructional days.


What does this mean for GCISD?

Due to the new legislation passed by the State, there will be some changes made to the student-teacher calendar in GCISD. Currently, our elementary school students have 72,840 minutes of instruction, which does not meet the new requirements. By adding fifteen minutes to each elementary school day, this will allow GCISD to meet the state standard of instructional minutes. Additionally, GCISD will be extending the high school day by 5-minutes to meet the new requirements. The middle schools already receive the required instructional minutes so their day will not require an extension. The new start and dismissal times are impacted not only by the change in the required instructional minutes but also by the resulting shift in the transportation schedules. The new times may be found below:

  • Elementary School 7:40 a.m. - 2:55 p.m.

  • Middle School 8:10 a.m. - 3:25 p.m.

  • High School 8:40 a.m. - 3:55 p.m.


In an effort to minimize the impact of HB 2610 to the elementary schools, the district will also reduce the number of early dismissal days from 6 to 4 days.. Instead of the elementary schools having two early dismissal days in each semester for student-led conferences, there will now be one per semester.


How did the district come up with the calendar?

The GCISD District Excellence Committee, comprised of teachers, staff, parents and community members, as well as district and campus leadership, reviewed possible calendar options for the 2016-2017 school year. After several months of gathering their feedback, a recommendation was made to the Board of Trustees.


What are the breaks for 2016-2017?

Student holidays for 2016-2017 are Labor Day, Columbus Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents Day/Washington’s Birthday and Memorial Day. Breaks reflect traditional community preferences of a week at Thanksgiving and Spring Break, and two weeks for Winter Break. The last day of school for students is Thursday, June 1, 2016.
