You are invited to provide feedback on the proposed 2017-18, 2018-19, and 2019-20 school calendars that include a one-week spring break. Your input will be included as part of the feedback used by the Board of Education when they make their decision on March 13, 2017 at the publicly held Board Meeting at 1383 9th Avenue at 7 PM.

A one-week spring break is currently part of the collective agreement between School District 73 and the Kamloops Thompson Teachers’ Association. A Letter of Understanding was put in place between the employer and the teachers’ union for a three-year trial ending June 30, 2017. The Letter of Understanding has expired and the District is now following the legislated processes required to adopt a new calendar for up to three years.

As per the regulations, this calendar is publicly posted on the school district website at for one month in order to receive public and employee feedback. Please share your thoughts on the proposed school calendar at .
