NO SCHOOL TODAY: Additional Non-Instructional Day To Support Implementation of the Redesigned Curriculum
​Please mark your calendar that May 24th will be a non-instructional day in our district, and students will not attend school. 
NO SCHOOL TODAY: Additional Non-Instructional Day To Support Implementation of the Redesigned Curriculum

​Please mark your calendar that May 24th will be a non-instructional day in our district, and students will not attend school. 

On September 28, 2015, the Ministry of Education announced 10 hours of non-instructional time to help prepare teachers for the implementation of the revised curriculum.  As schools will be closed to students for two days to facilitate this process, changes have to be made to school and district calendars throughout the Province.

At the November 25, 2015 Public Board Meeting, the Board of Education passed the following Motion:

      15P-182

      THAT:       The Board of Education approve February 9, 2016 and May 24, 2016 as the additional non-instructional days to help teachers prepare for the introduction of the revised curriculum.

 

School Principals and Parent Advisory Councils will determine the impact of these additional non-instructional days on individual school calendars.  Any further changes that may be required to local school calendars, beyond the closures on February 9th and May 24th, will be communicated by the school principal.
