Dolores Huerta/Cesar Chavez Day

FWISD OBSERVES DOLORES HUERTA AND CÉSAR CHÁVEZ DAY OF SERVICE MONDAY

Monday, March 25, is a student holiday in observance of the Fort Worth ISD Dolores Huerta and César Chávez Day of Service.

In 2018, the FWISD Board of Trustees established a “Day of Service” honoring Ms. Huerta and Mr. Chávez. The following year, FWISD was among the first school districts in Texas to observe a student holiday honoring the lives and legacies of Ms. Huerta and Mr. Chávez, who worked tirelessly for decades advocating for the civil and human rights of labor workers. The District observes the holiday the Monday prior to Mr. Chávez’s birthdate, March 31.

Monday is a staff development day for teachers and a regular workday for all other District employees.
