The Lancaster ISD Board of Trustees approved the 2022-2023 academic calendar at its March 29 meeting.
The approved 2022-2023 has some new features that align with the district's strategic focus on educator professional learning while honoring parent and student requests to end school before June.
The approved calendar has school beginning on Monday, August 15, 2022. Christmas break will be December 23 through January 6, and students will return to school Monday, January 9. Spring Break is the third week of March — March 13-17, 2023 — which aligns with neighboring school districts and the Dallas County Community College District, which benefits Lancaster ISD's early college high school students. School ends Friday, May 26, 2023, before Memorial Day.
Professional learning half-days are built into the calendar as a new calendar feature. These student early release days will allow for professional learning to occur during the workday and were made available upon request by staff during the calendar development process.
The approved calendar has greater than 75,600 minutes required by the state of Texas for student instruction.
