Minutes vs. Hours

Kylie Whittington and Valerie Stuart

This year, the state of Texas issued a new law that requires schools to base the year off of minutes instead of hours. Due to the new state law, a few things have changed. There is no longer a morning break, class periods have been extended approximately 10 minutes, and school now ends at 3:30 p.m. One final change would be that summer break will start two weeks earlier this year. These changes are expected to stay implemented for the upcoming years.
