2017-2018 DEC Handbook

PRINTABLE VERSION OF 2017-2018 DEC HANDBOOK  

*After conferring with TEA, as of the time of this announcement UIL expects that the 2017-18 TEA assessment calendar, as published on June 28, 2017, will not change. Some UIL events that are impacted by the assessment calendar, though, could be changed. Any changes to the UIL events will be reflected in the calendar, as published here: http://www.uiltexas.org/calendar. UIL staff is working closely with the Texas Education Agency to resolve any calendar conflicts as soon as possible. We will communicate any changes as soon as they are finalized.
