Back-to-School forms for the 2020-21 school year are now available only online in Skyward. Before the start of the school year, parents are asked to complete a series of forms to update student information for the new school year.
Families will need to complete an order form every two weeks for each Garland ISD student who would like meal service. Meals will be charged to the student's account according to the student's eligibility status and/or the eligibility designation of their home school (CEP, BIC, Universal-Free Breakfast). There must be sufficient fund in a student's meal account to cover the cost of meals.
The 2020-21 Calendar was revised by the Board of Trustees on June 23. The first day of school is now Monday, Aug. 10, and school hours have changed to allow for 10 additional minutes of instructional time.
The new calendar features intersession weeks, which consist of special days where students have the opportunity to participate in remediation, acceleration, or enrichment activities, similar to summer school offerings in previous years.
