On Monday, the Tyler ISD Board of Trustees voted to approve the District and Boshears calendars for the 2023-2024 school year.

The first day of school for students will be Wednesday, August 16, 2023, and the last day of school will be Friday, May 24, 2024, fulfilling a prominent request among families and District staff to wrap up the school year before Memorial Day.

The first day of school for students in the Boshears Center for Exceptional Programs will also be Wednesday, August 16, 2023, and their last day will be Friday, July 12, 2024.

The newly adopted district calendar continues to feature the 9-week grading periods. Each year the calendar committee seeks input and feedback from administrators, teachers, parents, business representatives, and community members. A draft calendar is created according to the best interests of students, staff, and parents.

“As always, we construct the calendar to meet the annual learning objectives for our students while building in what makes sense for traditional breaks for faculty, staff, and parents,” Tyler ISD Superintendent Dr. Marty Crawford said. “We have also intentionally added more professional development days throughout the year to support our teachers so they can keep our students on track for successful outcomes.”

A first reading of the draft calendar was held at the December regular board meeting. The community was then invited to provide feedback on the calendar by completing an online survey through December 31.
