CYPRESS — The Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Board of Trustees approved the calendar committee’s recommendations for the 2023-2024 instructional calendar during its regularly scheduled meeting on Jan. 12, 2023.
According to CFISD, Texas law mandates that instruction for the school year may not begin before the fourth Monday in August. For the 2023-2024 instructional year, the earliest start date is Aug. 28, 2023, which will serve as the first day of school.
In the fall semester of 2022, a calendar committee was organized to develop a calendar for the 2023-2024 school year. The committee was made up of district-wide representation, including teachers, parents, community members, campus administrators and support staff. The committee worked to construct the calendar using the 75,600 minutes needed to complete a school year required by law.
The committee recommended a calendar to the school board that will conclude the 2023-2024 school year on May 31, 2024.
In its meetings, the committee discussed various components of developing the instructional calendars before arriving at a consensus. The 2023-2024 calendar recommendation presented to the Board of Trustees included:
2023-2024 Cy-Fair ISD important dates:
• students begin school on Monday, Aug. 28, 2023;
