The Troy ISD Board of Trustees approved the 2017-2018 calendar at their meeting on Monday, February 20, 2017. The calendar, based on the number of minutes students are in school rather than just the number of days, is a significant departure from recent calendars. The added flexibility with the calendar has allowed the district to include additional much-needed teacher professional development days. The District Educational Improvement Committee worked hard to develop a calendar that will benefit both students and faculty/staff needs. Feedback on the calendar was sought from both faculty and staff as well as parents.
