School Calendar Survey

Developing a school calendar involves many considerations. Some of these considerations are in conflict with one another. Please help the calendar committee prioritize its decisions by providing some feedback regarding the development of the 2020-21 school calendar.

Details to note:
  • The calendar must meet a minimum of 75,600 minutes for all students.
  • High schools currently have 435 minutes a day.
  • Elementary, intermediate, and junior high schools have a 430 minute day.
  • Early Release counts for 420 minutes of instruction, and no waiver is needed if meeting the minimum 240 minutes of instruction.
  • Currently, each grade span (elementary, intermediate, junior high, or high school) has the equivalent of 940 to 1,050 minutes of additional time built into the day and available to use to prevent the need to make-up two missed instructional days for students.
  • For the 19-20 school year, the approved waiver for staff development days is for November 11 and January 7.
  • Conroe ISD has an approved District of Innovation application which allows the District to start school before the fourth Monday in August (8/24/20).
