Survey open

Garland ISD students, parents, community members and staff will have an opportunity to provide input on Garland ISD’s academic calendar until Nov. 15.

Over the last six weeks, Garland ISD’s calendar committee has been working to create school calendar recommendations that consider the needs of the district’s tri-city area.

The committee has drafted two calendar options for both school years under consideration: 2022-2023 and 2023-2024.

Students, parents, community members and staff will be able to complete a survey providing feedback on the calendar. The feedback will be shared with the District Educational Improvement Council for review and our GISD Board of Trustees for consideration and calendar adoption.

 The survey will be available through Nov. 15th and is available on the Garland ISD webside in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.
