Dear Parents and Guardians,
Every year, the four local school boards collaborate to establish a school-year calendar which aims to promote student learning, success and well-being, and to minimize the impact on the schedule of their families, staff and members of the school community, all while respecting Ministry of Education standards.
The school-year calendar must consist of 194 compulsory teaching days, a maximum of seven (7) professional development days (pedagogical days) and a maximum of ten (10) exam days for secondary schools.
The number of school days available between Sept. 1, 2023 and June 30, 2024 is limited, consequently, we are not able to offer our school communities many options. We invite you to indicate your preferences in the School Year Calendar Survey between Jan. 20 (tomorrow) and 26, 2023.
Please note that a total of 10 secondary school exam days will be subsequently added to the calendar.
Preferences and comments received will be taken into consideration in developing the final version.
Please indicate your preference between the two options below
Option 1: Start of the school year on Sept. 5, 2023, a board holiday on March 8, 2024 before the March Break and end of the school year on June 27, 2024.
Option 2: Start of the school year on Sept 5, 2023 and end of the school year on June 26, 2024 with a board holiday on June 27, 2024.
