School Boards Approve School Year Calendar for 2018-2019


The Algoma District School Board (ADSB), Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO), Conseil scolaire public du Grand Nord de l’Ontario (CSPGNO) and HuronSuperior Catholic District School Board (HSCDSB) have approved the School Year Calendar for 2018-2019.

The four school boards have worked together to produce a common calendar, facilitating the co-ordination of services such as student transportation. Each board adopted the calendar, consisting of a 194 day school year, following its own consultation process. Their respective calendars will be submitted to the Ministry of Education for final approval.
