McKinney ISD’s board of trustees approved the district calendar for the 2022-23 school year at the Nov. 16 meeting.

It will be similar to this year’s calendar: school is starting earlier in August and ending earlier in the spring. The first day of school is set to be Aug. 10 and the last day of class will be on May 25. Part of the goal, Chief Communications Officer Cody Cunningham said, is to give teachers additional opportunities for professional development.

A new addition to the calendar includes a break in October, which Cunningham said was considered after nearby districts such as Frisco and Allen ISDs implemented fall breaks. MISD’s fall break will take place from Oct. 7-11.

Thanksgiving break will still be a week long and the winter break will still be two weeks long, from Dec. 19 to Jan. 2. Spring break is scheduled for March 6-10 and staff development days are scheduled for Aug. 2-Aug. 9, Sept. 2, Oct. 7, Oct. 11, Jan. 3, Feb. 20, March 13 and May 26, which is also Graduation Day.

Other student holidays include Labor Day, Sept. 5, Martin Luther King Day, Jan. 16, and Good Friday, April 7.

Bad weather days are scheduled for Apr. 10 and Apr. 24.
