Save the Dates!
The Annual Charter School Conference will be held in Fort Worth on
December 11-13, 2013. In lieu of one day of student instruction, send
your staff to the Texas Charter Schools Conference for professional
development. This is permitted by section 25.081 of the Texas Education Code so
long as your calendar is approved by your charter school board and the charter
school notifies TEA's Waiver Unit.
Texas school districts are required to provide at least 180 days of instruction (Section 25.081, Texas Education Code). However, some districts have a waiver from the Commissioner of Education allowing them to substitute a few of those days for teacher professional development days.
