DRAFT School Year Calendar

March 30, 2019


The Wellington Catholic District School Board Trustees recently approved the 2019-2020 draft school year calendars for elementary and secondary schools in the Wellington Catholic District School Board.  The elementary and secondary draft calendars were submitted to the Ministry of Education for final approval. Confirmation will be shared once Ministry approval is received.

The proposed calendars were reviewed by a committee of stakeholders and meet all of the requirements under Ontario Regulation 304. Both calendars have 194 school days, including seven professional activity days. Ten instructional days have been scheduled for secondary exams.

It is proposed that students start the school year on Sept. 3, 2019.  The Christmas break will be December 23, 2019 to January 3, 2020.  March Break will be from March 16 to 20, 2020. The last day of school will be June 24, 2020 for secondary students and June 25, 2020 for elementary students.
