    ​​School Year Calendar for 2018-19

    Two options for the 2018-2019 School Year Calendar have been jointly developed by representatives from CTTCSD, GSSD and our local Teachers' Assocations.  The following list of criteria was used during the development of these options.

    • The number of instructional minutes per day has been set to 310.
    • The number of instructional days has been set to 185.
    • The Education Act 1995, which states, “In the absence of a minister’s order pursuant to subsection (4.1), the earliest day that a board of education or the conseil scolaire may set as the first instructional day in a school year is the first day following Labour Day.”​ 
    • The Departmental Exam schedule set by the Ministry of Education.  Because Departmental Exams run between Janaury 23 and January 28, the Turn-Around Day is scheduled for January 29, 2019.
    Please examine both options and then complete the following survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LPYLCR3​
