The other thing TX school districts had to look at was the TAKS testing
schedule... esp in the 3rd 5th and 8th grades... where they HAVE to pass the
reading (3rd, 5th, and 8th) and the math (5th and 8th).  The reading was
March 5th and the Math is April 8th.

My district is waiting until AFTER Easter to have spring break.... mine
is... although we get and "extra" day as our break starts on the 21st.  It
puts us with only one week and a day to get the kids back in "school mode"
before their Math TAKS test.  :(
