The Pearland ISD board of trustees approved the 2022-23 academic year calendar.

“I would describe the calendar recommended as extremely similar to this year’s calendar,” Superintendent John Kelly said at the board's Jan. 18 meeting.

Highlights of the approved school year calendar include Aug. 17, which will be the first day of classes in the district, according to agenda documents. In addition, the last day of the first semester will be Dec. 16, and it will be an early dismissal day.

Students will have extended breaks for holidays on Nov. 21-25, Dec. 19-Jan. 4, 2023, and March 13-17, 2023, according to agenda documents.

The final day of classes for the school year will be on May 25, 2023, which will be before the Memorial Day holiday and will also be an early dismissal day, agenda documents say. Graduation for the district will be on May 26, 2023, at NRG Stadium.


The 2022-23 academic calendar has the flexibility for four bad weather days and gives the district the ability to use April 10, 2023, or the day after Easter Sunday, as an additional bad weather day, if needed, according to agenda documents.
