Provide Feedback on Policies


Each board policy under review will be open for feedback from students, parents, staff, community members and other stakeholders. We are not able to respond to your input, but the feedback you provide will be analyzed and considered during policy review and development.

Policy development and review is guided by Board Policy CH.BP - Framework for Policy Development and Review.


GCA.BP Approval of the School Year Calendar

Draft considered by the Board of Trustees: February 6, 2024
Open for feedback: February 12, 2024

The first draft of the revised policy was approved at the February 6, 2024 Board meeting.

To provide feedback: 

"The video has subtitles available in 15 languages, which can be accessed by clicking the settings (gear) button."

Staff, students, families and community members are invited to share their feedback on the draft policies through an online survey.

The purpose of this policy is to

  • confirm the Board’s prioritization of days of significance 
  • outline the values and expectations that guide the Division’s development of the school year calendar and 
  • provide clarity to families and students around the collective agreement requirements, and applicable federal and provincial statutes and regulations that must be met when developing the calendar.

The draft policy provides direction for scheduling breaks for students with a focus on diverse days of significance, when possible. The Division also supports the recognition of diverse days of significance in schools through the Multi-Faith Calendar.

The survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer the survey.  Your participation will inform the Board’s final draft of this policy.
