Input needed for the 2021-2022 School Year Calendar

February 1, 2021—Each spring, school boards are required to establish a school year calendar for the upcoming school year, in accordance with Regulation 304: School Year Calendar and Regulation 364/15. These regulations set the beginning and end dates for the school year, stipulate school holidays, and prescribe the minimum number of instructional days (194), and the maximum number of professional activity days (7) and board designated holidays (Winter Break and Mid-winter Break).

In consultation with our two neighbouring school boards, Algonquin Lakeshore Catholic District School Board and Limestone District School Board, the following three options are being shared for input from employees, students, parents/guardians and community partners.

We need your input! Please complete the brief survey before 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 13, 2021 to share your preference and help shape the next school year calendar.
