Feedback wanted for Chilliwack school calendar options

School board receiving feedback from parents, employees and community until March 10

Parents, the wider community and school district employees are being asked to weigh in on next year’s school calendar.

The previously circulated calendar may need amending, and two alternatives are available online for the public to view and comment on.

The current calendar includes a two-week spring break and six non-instructional days, for a total of 180 instructional days. The second calendar option has a one-week spring break, six non-instructional days, and lets the students out for summer a week early (June 23), for a total of 181 days.

Finally, option three is a 176-day school year, with a two-week spring break six non-instructional days, and the extra week of summer in June.

Feedback on the calendar options is being accepted until March 10, through email to the executive assistant to the superintendent, at

The feedback will then be presented to the school board at their March 17 meeting, for consideration.

All three options are available online at, under News and Events.
