FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — School District 60’s board of trustees are seeking feedback from the public on a proposed three-year calendar.
Jarrod Bell, School District 60’s director of instruction, said each district has to present a district calendar to the Ministry of Education and Childcare, either on a one-year or a three-year basis.
“Our current calendar finishes off this year, so we’ve started the process to put forward a new three-year calendar to the ministry,” Bell explained.
Between the February board meeting and the March board meeting, there is a period of time when the proposed calendar is presented to the public to receive feedback.
There are no major changes in the next three years to the proposed calendar, Bell added.
“Where the dates land is dependent on the calendar as well as our collective agreement with their teachers, determines where many of the scheduled breaks happen,” he explained.
“[It] determines where Christmas [break] starts, where spring breaks start. Those kinds of pieces are decided in the contract. Many of the other days are statutory holidays, and some of the days, we do decide where they might land in terms of non-instructional days.”
The feedback they receive from the public is compiled and provided to the board.
Visit School District 60’s website to view the proposed three-year calendar.
Feedback can be sent by mail to the District Administration Office, 10112-105th Avenue, Fort St. John B.C., V1J 4S4 or email to [email protected] on or before March 6th, 2023.
