REVISED 2018-2019 Proposed School Calendar … Feedback Requested



Last Friday, the B.C. government announced a change to BC’s Family Day. Starting in 2019, BC’s Family Day will move to the third Monday in February (instead of the second Monday of February).

In light of this announcement, the proposed 2018-2019 School Calendar was revised to reflect the BC Family Day date change effective 2019. As a result of this date change, the Curriculum Implementation Day scheduled on February 22 was rescheduled to February 15. The revised school calendar also reflects the June 21 National Indigenous Peoples Day, noting this is a Regular Day of Instruction.

Coast Mountains Board of Education School District 82 is seeking public feedback regarding the “revised” 2018-2019 Proposed School Calendar. If you have completed the initial survey, much appreciated if you could complete the survey again as it has been changed to reflect the revised school calendar information.

For your information and viewing, please find the “revised” 2018-2019 Proposed School Calendar and Backgrounder as prepared and presented by the School Calendar Committee, an all-partner consultative committee formed by the Board of Education provided with a mandate to guide the development of a school calendar for the 2018-2019 school year.
