The Board of Trustees is updating its policy related to the development of the school year calendar:
- Board Policy GCA.BP Approval of the School Year Calendar
The purpose of the policy is to:
- confirm the Board’s prioritization of days of significance
- outline the values and expectations that guide the Division's development of the school year calendar
- provide clarity to families and students around the collective agreement requirements, and applicable federal and provincial statutes and regulations that must be met when developing the calendar
The draft policy provides direction for scheduling breaks for students with a focus on diverse days of significance, when possible. The Division also supports the recognition of diverse days of significance in schools through the Multi-Faith Calendar.This is an opportunity to provide feedback to the draft policy in an anonymous survey. The survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete. Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey. Information from the survey will help inform the final draft of this policy.
