After receiving feedback from community members, Prosper ISD officials have selected the academic calendar for the 2024-25 school year.

The district’s board of trustees approved Calendar A during its Dec. 11 meeting.

“We appreciate all the feedback that we received,” Superintendent Holly Ferguson said.

The background

District officials narrowed down to two calendar options for the school year and sought feedback through a survey. The survey had 5,535 respondents made up of teachers, parents and community members, according to the meeting’s presentation.

Both calendar options had the teachers returning to school Aug. 2 and the first day of the school year for students being Aug. 13. The semester lengths were also the same between the calendar options, with the fall semester being 84 days and the spring semester having 89 days.

The calendar options differed on the end of winter break, the last day of school and graduation dates.

Within the more than 5,000 responses, Calendar A was favored, the presentation states.
Sorting out details

In the fall semester, students will have Oct. 11 off with a school holiday planned for Oct. 14-15. Thanksgiving break is set for Nov. 25-29, and winter break will begin with an early release day Dec. 20 and last through Jan. 6, 2025.

In the spring semester, the calendar includes:
  • Students returning from winter break Jan. 7
  • A professional learning day with a student holiday Feb. 14
  • Spring break March 17-21
  • Last day of school May 23
  • Graduations on May 23-24
The district plans to hold one graduation the evening of May 23 and the other two graduations May 24, Ferguson said.
