Bowie Vertical Team DOI Dates (NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS)

Dear Parents and/or Guardians of the Bowie Vertical Team, Please remember that Austin ISD has become a District of Innovation (DOI), a designation that allows schools to adjust their schedules and calendars to meet the needs of the school community. The following changes were made last year for the Bowie Vertical Team. All Bowie Vertical Team Elementary Schools (Baldwin, Baranoff, Clayton, Cowan, Kiker, and Mills) will begin at 7:40 a.m. each day. The warning bell will ring at 7:35 am and students will be counted tardy if not in classrooms by 7:40 a.m. Students will be released each day at 3:00 p.m. · Bailey and Gorzycki start time and end time will remain the same. · Bowie High School start time and end time will remain the same. This slight adjustment in our start/end time will allow us extra days of professional development for our staff, which will allow our teachers to collaborate on lessons, analyze data, and engage in professional learning to better serve our students. On the following days, students will not attend school: The Bowie Vertical team DOI (district of innovation) dates are: October 11th, January 7th, and February 14th. Please note that there is no school for students on October 14th. If you have concerns, comments or questions please let me know. Cathryn Mitchell, Ph.D Principal
