Clear Creek ISD students will start school on Aug. 14 for the 2024-25 school year after the district’s board of trustees approved the new academic calendar at its Jan. 22 meeting.

What you need to know

While the majority of CCISD students will start Aug. 14, pre-K, kindergarten, sixth and ninth grade students will start Aug. 13, according to district agenda documents. The last day of school for students will fall on May 22.

CCISD’s board had to consider three possible calendar options, in which district staff and the community recommended the third option through a survey released in late 2023. The District Education Improvement Committee, or DEIC, met on Jan. 17 to further discuss the options, according to the document.

The main differences in the three options were first and last day of school dates, and student holiday dates.

What they said

“This is probably one of the hardest things that any committee has to do,” board trustee Jessica Cejka said. “I know no matter what happens there will be people that are not happy with calendars and some that are.”
