Performing Priority Schedule

Use of PAC facilities will be limited by the Weslaco ISD current facility use policy and any previously scheduled events. The Scheduling Priority Codes (listed below) controls the hierarchy of performances only. Rehearsals are scheduled on a tentative basis and are subject to change when actual performances or ceremonies are scheduled. All high school performing arts directors and campus administration should meet in late April/early May to outline their schedules for the upcoming year.

Beginning July 1, new requests may be submitted from the high school campuses and Weslaco ISD departments. Non-Weslaco ISD groups will be allowed to submit requests and deposits as of September 1. Any and all dates requested by WISD schools after August 31, are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Non-Weslaco ISD groups must submit requests two months prior to the performance requested. The two-month window for reservations of non-campus groups allows for determination and confirmation of the required number of PAC-trained technicians for the event to be done properly.
