Katy ISD Board of Trustees Approves Additional Holiday on April 1, 2024

KATY, TX [February 26, 2024] – During their regular February meeting, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved amending the 2023-2024 Instructional Calendar to provide students an additional day off, and staff members with a paid holiday on Monday, April 1, 2024. With the approved change, students and staff will enjoy a four-day weekend, with schools and district offices reopening on Tuesday, April 2. 


“The Board of Trustees approved an update to the 2023-2024 Instructional Calendar. The calendar update includes an additional staff and student holiday on April 1st,” said Victor Perez, Board President at Katy ISD. “Districts are required to provide at least 75,600 operational minutes per year, plus enough minutes to account for two bad weather days. Our district has met these criteria. Because of that, our Board was in the position to approve an additional and much deserved holiday for our students and staff,” he added.


Each academic year, Katy ISD carefully plans instructional minutes to allow for flexibility in the calendar. The district currently has a sufficient number of instructional minutes within the calendar to provide for an additional holiday for staff members.
