Commerce ISD '22-'23 Calendar Set; Grant With A&M-C Will Promote Entrance And Success of CHS Grads

Commerce ISD

Commerce ISD Superintendent Charlie Alderman discusses the 2022-23 school calendar, recently adopted by the Board of Trustees.

The first day of class will be Monday, August 15 and the last day will be Friday, May 26. To make up for lost time because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the icy winter weather, Monday, April 11 has been converted from a teacher in-service day to a class day, and minutes have been added to the daily schedule at Commerce Elementary School and the Commerce Middle School. The Commerce ISD and Texas A&M-Commerce have agreed to an Attaining College Entrance and Success (ACES) grant for 2023 seniors at Commerce High School.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
