Two instructional calendar options have been developed for the 2022-23 school year, and the district is seeking public input before a recommendation is presented to the Spring ISD Board of Trustees.
The two calendar options presented for next school year were reviewed and endorsed by the district’s Advisory Committee on Education (ACE). Calendar Option A has a proposed start date of Aug. 16 with the last day of school for students on June 1. Calendar Option B puts the first day of school on Aug. 15 and also ends the school year on June 1. Calendar Option A allows for an additional holiday for Election Day on Nov. 8.
Both calendar options prioritize maximizing student instruction, embed professional development for teachers, and include days during the year for parent-teacher conferences. Both options include two half-days of instruction to allow for parent teacher conferences: Option A has Nov. 7 and Feb. 17 scheduled; Option B has Oct. 7 and Feb. 17 scheduled. In addition, both options would include a Fall Holiday on Oct. 10 and a new district holiday for Juneteenth on June 19.
The 2022-23 Instructional Calendar Survey is located on the Spring ISD website at www.springisd.org/calsurvey. The survey will close on Wednesday, Jan. 5.
The survey results, along with a calendar recommendation, will be presented to the Spring ISD Board of Trustees for their consideration at the work session on Thursday, Jan. 6.
