2022-23 school year calendar in theworks

District to remove maskmandate effective June 1

CALENDAR PRIORITIES Based on survey results and recommendations, GISD staff established the following priorities: starting the school year with a full week in August; having a Thursday/Friday Easter holiday break; and ending semester one after winter holiday break. AVOID

BY FERNANDA FIGUEROA

GEORGETOWN ISD The district is in the process of finalizing a 2022-23 school year calendar based on recommendations of parents, students, staff, the community and the district performance committee, said Courtney Acosta, GISD chief strategist for systems and opera- tions, during a May 17 meeting. A total of three calendars have been built based on feedback from the committee, Acosta added. District staff will bring a final recommendation to the board at the next GISD board workshop either on June 21 or July 19, she said. In February 2020, the district adopted the school calendars for the academic years 2020-21 and 2021-22. Each year, the district plans to establish the student calendar at least an entire year in advance in order to provide families with greater notice on what to expect in the coming years.

BY FERNANDA FIGUEROA

GEORGETOWN ISD The district will no longer require masks inside district facilities starting June 1, Superintendent Fred Brent said May 17. Georgetown ISD waited to change its mask policy due to lack of vaccines for younger students, a rise in positive cases and staff’s safety concerns, GISD Executive Director for Communi- cations Melinda Brasher said. Safety protocols were estab- lished in the fall and do not expire until the end of the school year. For these protocols to be changed before the end of the school year, the board would have to vote, Brasher said. “The decision is just to con- tinue following those protocols through May 28, which is the last day of school,” she said. BY EXECUTIVE ORDER Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order does the following: Prohibits government entities in Texas from requiring or mandating mask wearing; this includes: • counties • cities • public health authorities • government officials • school districts

WILLIAMSON COUNTY Robert Chody, the former sheri of Williamson County, will be tried by a Travis County jury on charges of evidence tampering in the death of Javier Ambler II, who died in 2019 after being Tased by Williamson County Sheri’s Oce deputies in Travis County. Chody initially received indict- ments for tampering with phys- ical evidence from a Williamson County grand jury in September, followed by Travis County in March. However, Travis County District Attorney Jose Garza’s oce announced June 2 that Williamson County will dismiss its charges against Chody due to their overlap with Travis County’s. Both district attorney oces will work together to pursue the charges against Chody in Travis County; Garza swore in three special prosecutors from the Williamson County oce June 2

GEORGETOWN City residents and HEB representatives launched a petition to address inconsistencies in alcohol sales rules. The issue is with a 2010 voter-ap- proved decision to allow the sale of alcoholic beverages, including mixed beverages, within city limits. However, Wolf Lakes Village—which is located on the northwest corner of I-35 and University Avenue—was not annexed within city limits until 2017. With enough signatures, the mea- sure could appear on the November ballot for voters to decide.

a joint investigation will continue as a joint prosecution,” Williamson County District Attorney Shawn Dick said in a news release. “We look forward to having all the facts being properly provided to the public through the jury trials of Mr. Chody and Mr. Nassour.” The charges in question relate to events that took place in March 2019, when Ambler was involved in a car chase with Williamson County Sheri’s Oce deputies after failing to dim his lights to oncoming trac, according to county documents. A court setting for Chody’s and Nassour’s cases is scheduled for June 17.
