Information for Parents and Students regarding school closure guidelines for INCLEMENT WEATHER
LOCAL SCHOOL CALENDAR 2015-2016
In accordance with the requirements of the School Act, the Board of Education is seeking public and employee feedback on the Local School Calendar for the 2015-2016 school year.
The 2015-2016 Local School Calendar includes a 2 week Spring Break. Grade 8 to 12 students will receive 954 hours of instruction. This is a slight increase from 315 minutes/day as there were 182 instructional days for students in the 2014-2015 school year.
The Ministry requires 878 hours of instruction for Grades 1 to Grade 7 students and 853 hours of instruction for Kindergarten students. With 180 instructional days and 300 minutes/day, the hours of instruction for Kindergarten to Grade 6 students are 900.
NOTE: Grade 7 students in Chilliwack School District are included in Middle Schools and therefore receive 954 hours of instruction, well above the required number.
