To minimize disruption to students and families, the planning days will be scheduled for two dates already marked as early release - Thursday, December 17 and Friday, March 12. Students will not attend school on these days. Staff will use this time to collaborate and prepare.

"We know this is a challenging year for our teaching staff," Jarrell ISD Superintendent Dr. Toni Hicks said. "One of the top responses of staff in our needs assessment survey was in regard to needing more time to plan. I sincerely appreciate the Board responding to this need and adding these two planning days."
