2023-2024 Academic Calendar Voting Reopened
The Clear Creek Independent School District has restarted the 2023-2024 Academic Calendar voting process which now include a total of four options.
All calendar options have the school year beginning the third week of August. This is a change from previous years which typically had the school year beginning the second week of August. Here is why. The 2023-2024 school year overlaps two budget years. The start of the school year in August falls within the current budget year (2022-2023). Then on September 1st, the operating costs of the school district move to a new budget year (2023-2024). The Clear Creek Independent School District is facing a $9.2 million deficit for this current budget year. This deficit is largely due to a loss of state funding due to a decline in enrollment and student attendance and an increase in inflationary costs. Shifting more of the 2023-2024 school year operating costs into the new budget year will help CCISD realize a $6.8 million savings for this current budget year.
All calendar options include three weekends over the winter break, a week at Thanksgiving, and a week for spring break.
All calendar options include 171 instructional days and 187 contract days for teachers.
Calendar voting will close on Friday, December 16, 2022. The CCISD Board of Trustees will make the final determination of the 2023-2024 Academic Calendar.
