The 2016/17 North Vancouver School District School Calendar, approved by the Board of Education on March 24, 2015, requires amendment with the addition of one (1) non-instructional day as required by the Ministry of Education. This non-instructional day is part of the Ministry’s plan announced on September 28, 2015 to support implementation of the new BC K-12 curriculum by providing teacher training time specific to the curricular changes.
Monday, November 14, 2016 is identified as the date for the non-instructional day. Students will not attend school on this day.
