Please read the important message below from Jim Cambridge, Superintendent of Schools,
In late September, the Ministry of Education agreed to provide for two extra non-instructional days to the 2015/2016 school year. The Sooke Teachers’ Association determined that Monday, January 18, 2016 and Monday, April 4, 2016 would be converted from days of instruction to non-instructional days (NIDs). To decrease learning disruption, these days were chosen as they take place in different semesters. Copies of the revised 2015-16 Calendar are attached.
These days will provide critical training to teachers and staff about the province’s curriculum redesign. The new Kindergarten-Grade 9 official curriculum will begin September 2016 and the new Grade 10-12 curriculum is scheduled for the 2017/2018 school year. For more information about BC’s new curriculum, please visit curriculum.gov.bc.ca.
