Llano-area students will have five Fridays off on the 2023-24 calendar. The Llano Independent School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved the four-day weeks on Monday, Feb. 27.

Two alternative calendars were proposed during the board’s regular meeting:

The school board mulled over the calendar change for weeks and sought input from parents and guardians through an online survey on Feb.1

During the 2023-24 school year, students will get the following Fridays off: Sept. 29, Oct. 27, Jan. 26, Feb. 9, and April 5.

LISD is the second area district to consider four-day weeks. On Feb. 20, the Burnet Consolidated ISD board voted against the alternative calendar. Across the state, 40 out of 1,026 public school districts, or 3.89 percent, have incorporated four-day school weeks.
