Draft school year calendars for 2021-22 approved
April 28, 2021
At the Board Meeting held on April 27, 2021, trustees approved draft school year calendars for the 2021-2022 school year for elementary and secondary schools in the Upper Grand DSB. The draft calendars will now be submitted to the Ministry of Education for final approval.
The calendars were reviewed by a committee of stakeholders, including representatives from all bargaining units, principals, human resources, board staff, transportation, and parents.
Both calendars have 194 days, which include 7 professional activity days. In secondary, 10 instructional days have been scheduled for examinations. The calendars meet the minimum requirements under Ontario Regulation 304 and abide by the elementary and secondary teachers’ collective agreements.
It is proposed that students start the year on Sept. 7, 2021. For the Christmas/Winter break, classes will run until Friday Dec. 17, 2021, and return after the holidays on Monday Jan. 3, 2022. For this school year only, March Break will include Friday March 11 through to Friday March 18, 2022. The last day of school will fall on June 27, 2022, for secondary students and June 29 for elementary students. The Wellington Catholic District School Board will be submitting a similar calendar to the Ministry for approval.
The draft calendars will be posted on the board website under School Year Calendars.
