The New School Calendar Regulation
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. The 2014-2015 calendar survey will close on Thursday, Mar. 6, 2014. During the consultation period, a board must provide parents and board employees the opportunity to comment on the proposed calendar.
On March 11, 2014 the Board of Education approved three calendars for the next three school years. The draft calendar will now be submitted to the Ministry of Education for approval. The Ministry finishes the approval process by the end of April.
