AUSTIN ( -- Austin ISD has made a change to its 2020-21 calendar, designating Election Day as a student holiday.

The change, approved by the AISD Board of Trustees Monday, moves the existing October 12 student holiday to November 3. A professional development day scheduled for October 12 has also been moved to the same day.

The district says the change will help free up space on its campuses, some of which are traditionally used as polling locations on election day.

AISD students are set to return to in-person learning beginning on October 5.
