Please Provide your Feedback on the Draft 2018/2019 School Year Calendar

Posted on Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Every year, school boards across Ontario must submit school year calendars to the Ministry of Education. According to Regulation 304, school boards must develop a school year calendar for elementary and secondary schools that includes 194 school days (including seven Professional Activity Days) between September 1 and June 30 with up to 10 days designated as examination days for secondary schools.

Currently, HWDSB is involved in the process of developing its calendars (Elementary and Secondary) for the 2018-2019 school year.

The school year will begin for students and staff on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, following Labour Day.

We are seeking public input regarding the DRAFT calendars (Elementary and Secondary) until 4 p.m. on March 2 and would appreciate your participation through an on-line survey. It should take about five minutes to complete.

To see the draft elementary and secondary calendars, or to print off a hard copy of the survey, please visit our feedback page.
