2018-2019 Calendar Consultation

The 2018-2019 school year calendar includes 194 possible school days between September 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019. The Education Act requires a minimum of 194 school days of which school boards are required to designate three mandatory Professional Activity (PA) days as well as allowing for four discretionary PA days for a total of seven PA days.


Our board's draft 2018-19 elementary and secondary calendars propose the following:

  • Classes for students beginning on September 4, 2018

  • Classes ending for students on June 27, 2019

  • PA day on September 28, 2018 for both elementary and secondary panels

  • PA day on October 26, 2018 for both elementary and secondary panels

  • PA day on November 16, 2018 for all elementary and secondary schools, excluding those in Muskoka

  • PA day on November 23 for all Muskoka elementary and secondary schools only

  • Christmas holidays beginning on December 24, 2018 (last day of classes December 21, 2018) with classes resuming on January 7, 2019

  • PA day on January 31, 2019 for the secondary panel only

  • PA day on February 1, 2019 for both elementary and secondary panels

  • Winter break from March 11 - March 15, 2019

  • PA day on May 3, 2019 for both elementary and secondary panels

  • PA day on June 7, 2019 for the elementary panel only

  • PA day on June 28, 2018 for both elementary and secondary panels

  • For the secondary panel, ten instructional days for exams, five per term
