CISD Calendar Feedback

Conroe ISD is seeking public input on the 2023-2024 school calendar. The CISD District-Level Planning and Decision-Making Committee (DLPDMC) is responsible for developing the 2023-2024 school calendar and has developed drafts for students, families, employees, and the community to review. Feedback may be submitted from Friday, November 18, 2022, through 8:00 a.m. on Friday, January 6, 2023 via the survey below. The DLPDMC will then review all feedback and plans to make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees at their Regular Board Meeting on Tuesday, January 17, 2023.


Information about developing the calendar drafts can be found in the presentation made to the Board of Trustees at their November Meeting posted on the Board of Trustees Information webpage.
