While teachers, students and staff are right in the middle of the 2021-22 school year, Alvin ISD leaders are already preparing for the next school year.

The AISD board of trustees at its Jan. 11 board meeting approved the academic calendar for the 2022-23 school year, which is highlighted by 173 student instructional days and 187 teacher working days, according to agenda documents.

The first day of school for most students will be Aug. 18 except for those beginning prekindergarten, kindergarten, sixth grade and ninth grade in the 2022-23 school year, who will have their first day of class Aug. 17 instead, which the district is calling a transition day, according to agenda documents.

“I really appreciate the transition days that have been built into the calendar,” trustee Cheryl Harris said. “I think it is very helpful, and I just think it is a good thing we are doing for the kiddos.”

Other highlights for AISD students include extended breaks from class Nov. 21-25; Dec. 19-Jan. 2, 2023; and March 13-17.


State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, or STAAR, testing will occur Dec. 6-15; April 4-6 and May 2-12, 2023, for high school students. For elementary and junior high school students, STAAR testing will occur May 4-19, 2023, according to agenda documents.
