COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The College Station ISD Board of Trustees met Tuesday, November 15.  The following discussions and actions are of note. 


2023-2024 School Calendar Update:  A presentation regarding the development of the calendar for the 2022-2023 school year was given by Executive Director for Secondary Education Tiffany Parkerson.

The Districtwide Education Improvement Council has been working on calendar options during its October and November meetings and soliciting feedback from their peers on campus.

Currently there are three calendar options being developed, but at the December DEIC meeting those options will be reduced to two.  The two options will then be put out to the community for voting and feedback.

In January, DEIC will review the public input and make a recommendation to the board at either its January or February meeting for consideration.

Report from Demographer:  The Board received a report from Hudson Huff, a demographer with Zonda.  The report projects CSISD to continue growing, but slowing compared to previous projections.

In December, the board will receive a report breaking down predicted enrollment numbers by campus according to Policy FC(Local).  The policy states the administration shall annually review facility and enrollment projection data, including current demographic data, and five-year enrollment and school-capacity projections and present the results to the board.
