Two Additional Non-Instructional Days

The Ministry of Education, with input from both educators and the public, has worked to define the essential elements of a great education. The result is the BC Education Plan and it is the basis for redesigning the approach and content of BC’s curriculum. Effective September 1, 2016, the redesigned curriculum will be implemented for all students in Kindergarten to Grade 9. In preparation for these changes, two Non-Instructional Days have been added to this school year; Friday, February 26th, 2016 and Monday, May 16th, 2016. There will be no school for students on these days as teachers and administrators will be using them to plan and prepare for the new curriculum.

 

A public meeting will be held at the School Board Office on Wednesday, January 27, 2016, at 7:00 pm. The meeting will feature a presentation about the new curriculum and give everyone an opportunity to ask questions.
