One Week Spring Break


The Mission Board of Education has adopted a school calendar for the 2014-2015 school year that will continue with the established practice of a one week Spring Break. While the Board recognized that a number of our partner groups and families would have preferred to follow the trend of neighbouring School Districts in moving to a two week Spring Break, such a move would have left the Board with significant legal and financial risk. The Board is appreciative of a British Columbia Public School Employers' Association ('BCPSEA') offer to assist in addressing outstanding concerns.

The Board has made a commitment to re-examine the issue early in the new school year.
