Proposed School Year Calendar for 2017-2018

School boards in Ontario must prepare, adopt, and submit a school year calendar to the Ministry of Education. School year calendars for the elementary and secondary schools are drafted in accordance with the Education Act and Regulation 304 – School Year Calendar and are sent for review and approval by the Ministry of Education.

Public consultation is part of the process of gaining approval of the School Year Calendar. Parents, students, staff members and community members are invited to provide feedback regarding the proposed calendars.

*The proposed calendar is for dates only. Not design.

Surveys will be accepted until January 31, 2017.
