How is the calendar developed?

The school year calendar comes together with the help of an Executive Committee, in consultation with our coterminous Board, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board.

We also receive input from representatives of the Catholic School Parents’ Association (CSPA), the Parent Involvement Committee (PIC), the Catholic Principals’ Council–Ottawa (CPCO), union groups, non-affiliated groups, as well as the Board’s student trustees.

What are the requirements?

The ministry of education requires that the school year calendar have a minimum of 194 school days. A maximum of seven professional development (PD) days are permitted. Three PD days are mandatory and must be dedicated to provincial education priorities. The remaining school days shall be instructional days, and a total of ten instructional days are designated as examination days for high school students.
