The Ministry has let superintendents know that there will be a seventh non-instructional day for the purposes of curriculum implementation during the 2018–19 school year. This will be the fourth year in a row where there is an additional day or days.
There is no change to the year bookends, and members do not need to work additional days or additional minutes. As with the past few years, the practical effect is fewer days in session for students so that members can collaborate, plan, prepare, and conduct in-service related to the revised curriculum.
