At the June 23 board meeting, the Trustees approved the 2016-2017 School Year Calendar, which also extends the Revised School Year Calendar Pilot Project for a third year. In collaboration with the Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA), the District undertook the pilot project two years ago to explore ways it could support student success through enhanced professional development opportunities for teachers and support staff.
The 2016-2017 school year will continue to include common professional development (PD) days for teachers and two days in lieu for time they’ve invested in parent-teacher conferences. The new calendar also provides some extended weekends to staff, students and their families, as the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 calendars did. Although students will have a few extra days off, they’ll receive the same amount of instructional time due to slightly longer school days.
