Proposed School Year Calendar for 2019-2020
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 calendar.
For the 2019-2020 School Year, in order for the first and second semesters to be the same length, and to have the January 31 Professional Development (PD) Day occur on a Friday, we had to add a one-day Board Instructional Holiday in the FIRST semester (the one-day Board Instructional Holiday cannot be in the second half of the year, which is why it cannot be the Friday before the March Break).
Feedback from previous years indicates a desire for a Fall Break (like March Break). We are proposing a Fall ‘mini-break’, with the PD Day on Thursday, November 28, and a one-day Board Instructional Holiday on Friday, November 29. This will provide a four-day weekend for students and a three-day weekend for teaching staff, Educational Assistants, and Designated Early Childhood Educators in November 2019.
