Greater Victoria School Board Approves 2021-2022 School Year Calendar

The Board of Education has approved the calendar for the 2021-2022 school year. The calendar highlights non-instructional days, vacation breaks, school openings and last day of classes.

The District sought public input on the calendar for 30 days, starting back in February. After reviewing compiled feedback, the Board decided to move forward with the original calendar proposal.

The District has collaborated with neighbouring districts in Saanich (School District #63) and Sooke (School District #62) on this calendar to align important dates as much as possible.
