"Published: 10:46 AM on January 22, 2016 -- House Bill (HB) 2610 passed by the 84th Texas Legislature amends Texas Education Code (TEC) §25.081 by striking language requiring 180 days of instruction, and replacing with language requiring districts to provide at least 75,600 minutes of instruction including intermissions and recess. This new law passed May 31, 2015; well after most districts had already approved their 2015-2016 school calendars.

Clarification details on the new law were not made available until the fall of 2015. Shortly, thereafter, it was discovered that the Live Oak Learning Center and Fulton Learning Center would be deficient in meeting the required number of minutes for the 2015-2016 year.

Therefore, Live Oak Learning Center and Fulton Learning Center will start school at 7:40 a.m. (five minutes earlier) beginning February 1, 2016 through the remainder of the school year. Doing so will allow the schools to make-up their time deficiency and meet its requirements of the law." Source
