news item: Changes to the 2024-2025 school year calendar

Last spring, the Board of Trustees approved the 2024–25 school year calendar. Since then, Alberta Education has finalized its exam schedule and the Alberta Teachers’ Association and the Board of Trustees ratified a new collective agreement. These developments have meant that changes were needed to the calendar.

On Tuesday, the Board of Trustees approved a new calendar.

School year starts earlier

The first day of classes will now be Thursday, August 29 for most Division schools. Teaching staff will return to work on Wednesday, August 28. 

Fall break added

A fall break has been scheduled for November 8 to 13 for most schools. 

A number of Professional Development (PD) days were shifted throughout the school year, and one was removed, to accommodate the changes. 

You can view the updated 2024–25 school year calendar for more important dates. If your child’s school has a modified calendar, some dates may be different; please check with the school.
