Mark your calendar! The School Board of Broward County, Florida approved the 2023/24 school calendar at its Tuesday, December 13, 2022, School Board meeting. The first day of school for the 2023/24 school year is Monday, August 21, 2023. The last day of school is Monday, June 10, 2024.

The approved calendar includes a week-long Thanksgiving break, two full weeks for Winter Break, one week for Spring Break, and additional days off that reflect the diversity of the district.

The survey revealed stakeholders preferred the calendar option approved by the School Board.
