School District Calendar

School District Calendar


At its regular public meeting on March 9, 2016, the Board of Education approved the 2016/17 and 2017/18 District School Calendars. In accordance with School Calendar Regulation, the calendars were submitted to the Ministry of Education for approval.

The School Act requires that all school districts in British Columbia develop their own school calendars. School calendars must provide the minimum number of prescribed instructional hours identified in the School Calendar Regulation B.C. Reg. 314/12.
