On Thursday, February 23, 2023, the Victoria Independent School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved the 2023-24 District Academic Calendar. With this new calendar, students and staff will begin school on Wednesday, August 9, 2023. 

This calendar was approved by the Board after months of discussion, input from District employees, surveys, and intense research. Several calendar options were considered, and all options had to ensure 180 instructional days for students, provide significant opportunities for professional development and planning, preserve certain holidays, and maintain the current number of annual contract days for staff members.

The approved calendar was chosen through a final survey sent to District staff.

“Creating a school calendar that meets the needs of all students and staff members while adhering to the established parameters can be challenging. We are excited about the work completed by our calendar committee. We are confident that our 2023-24 academic calendar supports both student and staff learning while also providing valuable family time during the holidays. Thank you to the staff members who represented their teams on the district’s calendar committee and to all staff who provided valuable input throughout the process.” 

The calendar was brought forward in February to provide parents and guardians adequate time before the new school year begins.
