The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board School Year Calendar Committee is comprised of parent representatives, students and various employee groups. The Committee has begun the process of planning the school year calendar for the 2020-2021 school year.
As the Committee prepares to make recommendations for the next school year, we are seeking your feedback on the options available for next year's calendar. Your feedback will be shared with the Committee as they make their recommendations. 
It is important to note that the late placement of Labour day (September 7, 2020) will require a start date of Monday, August 31, 2020.

  • Wednesday, December 23, 2020 - Tuesday, January 5, 2021.
