Last December we asked for input from parents and guardians regarding vacation preferences for Christmas 2016. Thank you to everyone who completed our survey and the schools, councils and individuals who helped to share this survey with others. We received over 6700 responses! WOW!!
As you can see below, there was an overwhelming preference for Option 2: vacation from Saturdayto .
In January, we provided these results to the OCSB Calendar
Last Tuesday, the Board of Trustees approved the proposed OCSB school calendar for 2016-17. This proposed calendar features a later Christmas break, as preferred by parents/guardians and has the OCSB elementary and secondary PA days all occurring on the same days.
The calendar dates cannot be considered final until they have been approved by the Ministry of Education. A response from the MOE is expected in the spring.

Again, thank you to everyone for your interest and participation.
