Intersession

Intersession Calendar

Our District calendar includes intersession weeks strategically placed throughout the school year to lessen instructional gaps. These periods support and improve student academics by offering instruction tailored to students' individual needs. Intersessions will be well planned, targeted learning opportunities for students. Please confirm with your campus' academic calendar, as not all EISD campuses follow an intersession calendar.

Why Intersession?
Intersession is to help improve instructional outcomes for our students. In light of the lost instructional time due to COVID-19 school closures and remote learning, we feel that is necessary to be proactive in preparing to close instructional gaps that our students may experience. The intersession weeks will allow us to bring in targeted groups of students to address specific content gaps and get them back on track with real time support rather than waiting until the summer. In addition, we will be able to offer acceleration to our students who need further content enrichment. This time will allow for brain breaks and take our students further into the traditional summer months to reduce summer slide.
