Section 87.01 (7) of the School Act requires consultation on school calendars and the Regulation sets out the parameters for that consultation. A board must make public a proposed school calendar one month before submitting it to the ministry. During the consultation period, a board must provide parents and board employees the opportunity to comment on the proposed calendar.
On March 21, 2016, the Board of Education approved three calendars for the school years 2016-2017, 2017-2018 and 2018-2019. All three of these calendars have been approved by the Ministry. Please note that school calendars are subject to change. If a change in calendar is required, it will be done according to the calendar amendment process.
