The Board of Education has approved the calendars for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 School Years.  The school calendars outline professional development days, spring and winter breaks.

The calendars were developed in consultation with Sooke and Saanich school districts in an efforts to align dates as much as possible.  Spring and winter breaks will be the same for all three districts.
