The Spring ISD Board of Trustees on Tuesday approved a 2022-23 Instructional Calendar that will have students starting classes on Aug. 16, 2022, and finishing school on June 1, 2023.
The approved calendar was one of two options presented to staff and the community for input in a survey that drew feedback from more than 1,700 people.
Both calendar options prioritized maximizing student instruction, embedding professional development for teachers, and included days during the year for parent-teacher conferences. Both options include two half-days of instruction to allow for parent teacher conferences, and the approved calendar setting aside two full days on Nov. 7 and Feb. 17. Additionally, the calendar includes a Fall Holiday on Oct. 10 and a new district holiday for Juneteenth on June 19. The approved calendar allows for an additional holiday for Election Day on Nov. 8.
Under the approved calendar, the Winter Holiday will begin for students after a half-day of instruction on Dec. 16 and end with them returning to school on Thursday, Jan. 5. Spring Break will start after a half-day of instruction on March 10, with classes resuming on Monday, March 20.
The Spring ISD Advisory Committee on Education (ACE), which includes staff and teachers, offered input and guidance before the two calendar proposals were presented to the public in the community survey. Both options met all state requirements for instructional time, including 174 days with 440 instructional daily minutes to build in make-up days if necessary.
