The FSSD operates on a distinct calendar that maximizes student learning prior to the state's required assessment period, as well as offers embedded professional learning time for educators and family friendly breaks that enable students and faculty members to return refreshed and ready to learn.
 
This calendar was approved by the School Board on Feb. 10, 2014. There are 86 instructional days in the first semester and 91 instructional days in the second semester. The first day of school in 2014-2015, Wednesday, August 6, will be a half-day. Students will be dismissed 3 hours early on this day.

This calendar again includes Early Dismissal Days. Six times during the year, your child will be dismissed 3 hours early. This time is necessary for school principals and teachers to work on your child’s student data, determine progress, prepare for curriculum updates and plan for instruction with grade-level and subject area teams. As always, MAC will be available for after-school care on these days.

Professional Development and Administrative Days are those days when students are not in school so teachers and administrators can meet in grade-level and subject area teams, review student data, receive the latest updates on curriculum changes, and learn improved ways to deliver instruction.


In developing the school calendar, the district takes the following into consideration:

  • Correlation to the Williamson County calendar:  Because we have many families with children in both the FSSD and Williamson County Schools, the district tries to correlate its calendar, as much as possible, to the Williamson County Schools calendar.
  • Support of District Design Team:  The FSSD Design Team, a large committee of teachers, principals and Central Office staff, helps guide discussion on the calendar proposal. They gather feedback from the faculties at their respective schools, which is used to make modifications on the final calendar. (Teacher Calendar)
  • Instructional days prior to TCAP:  One of the primary considerations that school districts must now take into account is the number of student instructional days prior to the TCAP.  By law, each school district must have a minimum of 150 instructional days prior to TCAP and the FSSD strives to go beyond that minimum requirement.
