Revised School Year Calendars
The 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school year calendars for Edmonton Public Schools have changed. Over the next two school years, there will be more professional development (PD) days for teachers and one more day in lieu for time they have invested in parent-teacher conferences. Although students will have a few extra days off, they will still receive the same amount of instructional time due to slightly longer school days.
