2024-2025 School Year Calendar Survey Results

In January 2024, the Regional School Year Calendar Committee issued a survey for students, families and staff asking for feedback on two calendar options for the upcoming 2024-2025 school year. 4,260 survey responses were received. Option 2, with students starting school on September 3, 2024, and ending school on June 25, 2025, was chosen by 54.9% of survey respondents. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey!
