Additional Days School Year (ADSY)
In June 2019, the passage of House Bill 3 by the 86th Texas Legislature added half-day formula funding for school systems that add up to 30 instructional days to any of their elementary schools starting in the 2020-2021 school year. This initiative is called Additional Days School Year (ADSY). Funding for ADSY is available to campuses that meet the requirements below.
Campuses eligible for ADSY funding must:
- Serve at least one grade level within grades PreK-5th grade
- Have a campus academic calendar with at least 180 instructional days
- Have a campus academic calendar with at least 75,600 instructional minutes, not including staff development waivers
- Add up to 30 additional days of instruction in addition to the 180 instructional days in its regular academic calendar
- Have a certified teacher deliver at least two hours of instruction on designated ADSY days
- Include ADSY days separate from the regular instructional calendar days (e.g., ADSY days cannot be hosted in the second part of a regular instructional day)
More information on the implementation of ADSY can be found in the ADSY HB 3 in 30 webinar recordings below and in the ADSY FAQs.
