“In the fall semester of 2019, a calendar committee was organized to develop a calendar for the 2020-2021 school year,” according the CFISD website. “The committee was made up of district-wide representation, including teachers, parents, community members, campus administrators and support staff. The committee worked to construct the calendar using the 75,600 minutes needed to complete a school year required by law.”

The 79th Texas Legislature in 2005 mandated that instruction for the school year may not begin before the fourth Monday in August. For the upcoming instructional year, the earliest start date is Aug. 24, 2020. On the other end, school is set to complete on May 27, 2021.
