Seeking Input: 2022-2023 Instructional Calendar Survey

Two instructional calendar options have been developed for the 2022-2023 school year by the District Education Improvement Committee (DEIC), and the district is seeking your input before a recommendation is presented to the Board of Education.

Unlike years prior, both calendars are on a nine-week schedule. This change was considered and supported by campus leadership teams, the teaching learning and innovation team, and by the DEIC. Despite this change, both options provide a holiday once a month and have identified early dismissal days prior to every major holiday. Both calendar options prioritize maximizing student instruction, while embedding professional learning for teachers.

Review each calendar and submit the choice that best suits the needs of your student and family on the Google Form linked below by noon on Tuesday, February 8, 2022. The calendar receiving the most votes will be recommended to the Castleberry ISD Board of Education for final approval.

Notable Similarities and Differences

  • Both calendars have a proposed start date of school for students on Wednesday, August 10, 2022 with the last day of school for students on Friday, May 26, 2023.

  • The month of January looks different on both proposed calendar options.

    • Option A extends the student’s winter break by one day, allowing for a teacher preparation day on Monday, January 2, 2023.

    • On calendar option C, Monday, January 2, 2023 is an instructional day for students, but Monday, January 9, 2023 is a teacher preparation day and student holiday.

    • January 17, 2023 is a school holiday for teachers and students, and Tuesday, January 17, 2023 is a teacher professional learning day and student holiday, giving students a four-day weekend in mid-January.
