Last day to give feedback on Conroe ISD 2018-19 calendar is Jan. 8
Conroe ISD published the two drafts for the 2018-19 calendar on the district website on Nov. 17 for feedback. Students and parents have until 4 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 8 to submit feedback for the District-Level Planning and Decision-Making Committee’s review.
The 2018-19 calendar drafts feature an earlier start date of Aug. 15, which will make it the second consecutive year of an earlier start date, if approved. This proposal is part of CISD’s plan to be a District of Innovation, allowing greater local control and increased flexibility on educational programs, according to CISD’s website.
Both calendar drafts also include an April 19 holiday, as well as spring breaks from March 11-15 or March 18-22. Draft 1 has an end date of May 24, and Draft 2 has an end date of May 30.
