Lewisville ISD students will return to class earlier in August than they did last year after the district approved its next academic calendar.

The district’s board of trustees on Jan. 11 approved the new calendar for the 2021-22 school year, adding clarity regarding key dates and holiday schedules for families and staff.

Under the new calendar, school would start Aug. 11, the second Wednesday of the month, and continue through May 24 of the following year.

The district arrived at the decision after trustees narrowed eight calendar options from district staff down to two in November. The district then sought input from the community via survey on those two remaining options.

In the end, more than half of the LISD survey respondents favored the calendar the district ended up adopting, Deputy Superintendent Lori Rapp said. This calendar, unlike the alternative one trustees considered, features five days off for spring break instead of six, as well as an earlier end date to the school year.


The district is aiming for April as it prepares to set next year’s start and end times. District staff do not expect these times to affect the dates already approved in the academic calendar, according to a district memo.

Highlights from 2021-22 calendar:

  • Aug. 11—First day of school

  • Sept. 6—Labor Day holiday

  • Oct. 11—Columbus Day holiday

  • Nov. 22-26—Thanksgiving break

  • Dec. 20-Jan. 5—Winter break

  • Jan. 17—Martin Luther King Day holiday

  • Feb. 21—Presidents’ Day holiday

  • March 14-18—Spring break

  • April 15—Good Friday holiday

  • May 24—Last day of school
