2017-2018 School Division Calendar approved

During the March 21, 2017 regular board meeting, the Peace River School Division (PRSD) board of trustees approved the 2017-2018 School Division Calendar.

Based on stakeholder feedback, some changes were made to the first draft of the calendar:

• PRSD Staff Kick-off will be held on August 31, 2017 (the second day back for staff)
• The first day of classes for students is September 5, 2017
• Christmas break will run from December 23, 2017 to January 7, 2018
• Easter break will be held from March 30 to April 6, 2018

Although some feedback questioned scheduling a day off for students in the middle of the week in January, it was decided that this date needed to remain as January 31, 2018. This allows schools to transition to the second semester which is the intent of the semester break day.

The calendar was open for feedback from school communities between January 24 and March 10, 2017. Following consultations with school communities through email, social media, staff based and School Council meetings, input was reviewed by the Calendar Committee (representatives from PRSD and Ecole Quatre-Vents) and presented to the board of trustees for approval.

PRSD thanks the Calendar Committee, school communities and partnering school divisions for your contributions, partnership and input.
