Board Approves Local School Calendar for 2022-23

At the March 8th public board meeting, the Abbotsford Board of Education passed a motion to approve and formalize the school calendar for 2022-2023. The Abbotsford Board of Education is required to create a calendar that meets the legislated requirements of the School Act, and the Abbotsford Teachers Union (ATU) Collective Agreement.  

This conclusion comes after parents and the community were invited to provide feedback on the district's Engage Portal over two weeks in February. A total of 1,251 online calendar survey responses were received, where 79% of respondents were in support of the proposed calendar. General comments received from the public, families and staff expressed concern about the timing of the two-week spring break first presented. As such, the Board approved a revised calendar version, which reflected an updated spring break timeframe. 

The 2022-2023 school year will begin on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, following the Labour Day weekend.  

Key dates of the 2022-2023 Calendar also include:
