PA day delays start of 2014-2015 school year

The new school year starts one day later this year — on Sept. 3 — as Sept. 2 is a professional activity day.

That's one of the highlights of the 2014-2014 school year calendar, which has been approved by the Rainbow District School Board, Sudbury Catholic District School Board, Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) and Conseil scolaire public du Grand Nord de l’Ontario (CSPGNO).

The four school boards have worked together to produce a common calendar for many years, facilitating the co-ordination of services such as student transportation. Each board adopted the calendar following its own consultation process. The calendar will now be submitted to the Ministry of Education for final approval.

The 2014-2015 School Year Calendar will be the same for all English and French-language schools in Greater Sudbury, Espanola, Manitoulin Island, Shining Tree and Sudbury East, including Warren, Markstay, Noëlville, St. Charles and Killarney.

The calendar will also apply, with minor differences, to CSCNO and CSPGNO schools in Elliot Lake, Blind River, Spanish, Sault Ste. Marie, Wawa, Chapleau, Dubreuilville and Hornepayne. The board of trustees of Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board and Algoma District School Board approved the 2014-2015 School Year Calendar at a recent board meeting.
