10.B. 2022-2023 School Calendar
Description:  The attached preliminary calendar was developed during the SISD District Advisory Committee meeting on Monday, February 28th is being presented for board review and will then be posted for public review prior to bringing it to the board for approval next month. The calendar is almost identical to the school calendar for this year. The big difference for next year will be release times for SPS and SIS will be more closely aligned with SHS and SJHS.  There are 180 days of instruction, full week off at Thanksgiving, and the last day of school is prior to Memorial Day. The preliminary calendar does include 2 Bad Weather Days that are required for the Additional Day School Year (ADSY) funding to pay for SPS and SIS summer school. We did not include the 2 bad weather days this year because we were unaware of that requirement, and because of the length of our school days we have 11 days of excess minutes in the SPS and SIS calendars. We are working with the TEA regarding this summer, we will still have ample ESSR revenue available for summer school this year.

Out of state travel requires board approval. We are working on travel plans and will bring back this item for board approval once the travel plans are finalized.

10.E. Scoreboard Replacement - Tiger Stadium
Presenter:  Clay Cade
Description:  With the upcoming renovation of the track and turf at Tiger Staduim, it would be a good time to look at a scoreboard replacement.  The cost would be approximately $50,000 and sponsorships would be available.
