Goliad ISD is implementing a new incentive plan to acknowledge student achievement.

Students who meet the guidelines will have three “flex days” in January that will allow them to extend their Christmas break to Jan. 2-4.

Students who do not meet the guidelines will attend classes these days and receive extra instruction to help prepare them for spring tests.

Pre-kindergarten and Head Start students are not eligible for “flex days” and must attend school Jan. 2-4.

Guidelines are as follows:

Kindergarten - no more than five absences since the start of school (Aug. 27-Dec. 20) and Texas Primary Reading Inventory developed (passed)
