Proposed 2020/21 School Calendar
The Board of Education invites your feedback on the PROPOSED 2020/21 New Westminster Schools’ District School Calendar.
The School Act and the School Calendar Regulation require that proposed school calendars be made available for public comment before being considered for adoption.
While school districts may develop school calendars for up to 3 years, only 2020/21 is being considered at this time. However, the proposed Winter and Spring Break dates for the next three years have been identified and can be viewed below.
Key proposed dates for the 2020/21 District Calendar are:
- First day of school: Tuesday, September 8, 2020
- Winter Break: two weeks, December 21, 2020 to January 1, 2021, inclusive (aligned with known break dates for other Metro Vancouver area school districts)
- Spring Break: two weeks, March 15, 2021 to March 26, 2021, inclusive (aligned with known break dates for other Metro Vancouver area school districts)
- Last day of attendance for students: Tuesday, June 29, 2021
We welcome your feedback via email before February 28, 2020. All feedback will be brought forward at the March 3, 2020 Combined Education and Operations Policy & Planning Committee meeting and the calendar will be formally adopted at the March 10, 2020 Regular Open Board meeting.
