School Calendar Memo
Recently, we received a memo from Scott MacDonald, Deputy Minister/Ministry of Education advising the following:
In response to requests from our education partners and in order to continue to support curriculum implementation, the Minister has made changes to the School Calendar Regulation that will be in effect for the 2018/19 school year.
The hours of instruction for the 2016/17 and 2017/18 school years were reduced in 2016 by 5 hours to the following:
• 848 hours for students in Kindergarten • 873 hours for students in Grades 1-7
• 947 hours for students in Grades 8-12
