2024-25 Academic Calendar Approved

February 21, 2024

At its regular meeting on February 12, the WISD Board of Trustees approved the district's Academic Calendar for the 2024-2025 school year. The construction of the 24-25 calendar was led by Assistant Superintendent Jason Valentine, who relied on input and feedback from multiple groups, consisting of parents and staff members. The District Educational Improvement Committee (DEIC) and the Superintendent's Faculty Advisory Committee (SFAC) both submitted features they wanted to see in the calendar, while balancing state requirements that include instructional minutes, student holidays, and other dates. Six different draft calendars were created that reflected this input.

Feedback from the DEIC and SFAC narrowed down the number of options from six to two and the WISD staff was given the option to vote on the two final calendar versions via a staff survey. The final version, which was the one the board approved, was the top choice among staff and features the following calendar highlights:

  • Waiver In-District Professional Development July 29 - August 2, 2024

  • Teacher in-service begins on August 5, 2024 

  • First Day of School - August 14, 2024

  • Last Day of School - May 22, 2025  

  • November 1st is a parent conference day for BHP and JWE; and a teacher Professional Development/In-Service day for JH/HS (no classes for students at any campus)

  • Christmas break is Dec. 19 - January 6 (teachers return on Monday, January 6th; students return on Tuesday, January 7th)

  • Spring Break is March 17 - 21

  • There are four-day weekends for students on October 11 - 14, February 14 - 17 (President's Day) and April 18 -  21 (Easter weekend)

  • Graduation is scheduled for Friday, May 16, 2025

  • May 23rd is a teacher work day

  • There are also extra instruction days built into the calendar to allow for potential weather events or unplanned early releases

WISD would like to extend a special thank you to our calendar sponsors for the 2024-25 Academic Calendar: The Bailey Group - Hill Country Real Estate and Texas Regional Bank. These sponsors will once again allow WISD to distribute magnetic calendars to each of our students and staff members in August.
