Proposed 2018/19 and 2019/20 District School Calendars

Proposed 2018/19 and 2019/20 District School Calendars

 

The Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District has revised the 2018/19 and 2019/20 Proposed District School Calendars to reflect changes made at the provincial level with respect to the timing of the Family Day statutory holiday and the addition of a non-instructional day for 2018/19, supporting provincial curriculum implementation. You will find additional information about the nature of these changes below.

The consultation period on the proposed calendars runs from Thursday, January 25, 2018 to Friday, February 23, 2018. All feedback will be reviewed by senior team and the calendars will be adjusted if required before being submitted to the Board of Education for approval at the March 7, 2018 regular public meeting.
 
Once they are approved, the calendars will be posted on the district website and submitted to the Ministry of Education by March 31, 2018.

 

 

Changes to 2018/19 and 2019/20 Proposed District School Calendars

 

Family Day statutory holiday moved

On February 9, 2018, the provincial government announced that, effective 2019, the Family Day statutory holiday will move from the 2nd Monday of February to the 3rd Monday of February. This change was not reflected in the initial 2018/19 and 2019/20 Proposed District School Calendars, which went out for consultation before the announcement was made.

The calendars presented to the Board of Education at the March 7, 2018 public meeting will include this change. The district will also recommend that the February non-instructional and schools-not-in-session days immediately preceding the Family Day holiday be moved so they continue to precede this statutory holiday. 

The new proposed dates are as follows: 

2018/19 Proposed District School Calendar:  
Non-instructional day Thursday, February 14, 2019 
Schools not in Session day Friday, February 15, 2019 
Family Day holiday Monday, February 18, 2019 

2019/20Proposed District School Calendar:  
Non-instructional day Thursday, February 13, 2020 
Schools not in Session day Friday, February 14, 2020 
Family Day holiday Monday, February 17, 2020

 

Non-Instructional Day added to support new provincial curriculum implementation for 2018/19 school year only

On February 2, 2018, school districts received notice from the Ministry of Education that the requirements for school calendars in the 2018/19 school year only have been changed to include one additional required non-instructional day supporting provincial curriculum implementation. This change was not reflected in the initial 2018/19 Proposed District School Calendars, which went out for consultation before the announcement was made.  

The calendars presented to the Board of Education at the March 7, 2018 public meeting will include the proposed date of Monday, April 29, 2019 to accommodate for this additional required non-instructional day.

* The proposed calendars have been revised with all changes marked in red.
