  • Students at the Ysleta Independent School District will NOT be required to make up a day of instruction due to the planned closure of YISD schools on Wednesday, Feb. 17. According to Texas Education Code, the school year is no longer defined as 180 days of instruction. Instead, the requirement has been changed to at least 75,600 minutes of instruction, with one day defined as 420 minutes. Even with the one-day closure, our elementary schools, middle schools, and comprehensive high schools will meet the state’s requirement for instructional time this year. Posted Jan. 19, 2016: After thoughtful deliberation and a survey of principals, the Ysleta Independent School District will close its offices and schools on Feb. 17 in anticipation of a substantial decrease in student and staff attendance due to the scheduled papal visit to Ciudad Juarez. While YISD administration recognizes and supports the separation of church and state as outlined in the U.S. Constitution, the decision to close the district on Feb. 17 is based on the potential detrimental financial impact to YISD related to student, faculty, and staff absenteeism, as well as an increased demand for substitute teachers. As a result of the one-day closure on Feb. 17, instructional and professional time will be made up in accordance with district policy. Detailed information will be provided this week to all students, parents, and employees whose instructional and/or professional schedules will be impacted by the closure on Feb. 17.
