This page shows you the Calgary Board of Education approved and tentative school instructional calendars. Tentative calendars are provided to help families look at planning ahead; however, unforeseen circumstances may require changes to any school instructional calendar.
In addition to the traditional 10-month school calendar, the CBE establishes and approves a modified calendar. This calendar begins the school year in August and builds in non-school days during the school year. All students are provided the required amount of instructional time regardless of the school calendar used.

System calendars establish common start and end days, and 10 system-wide days for schools to plan for student learning and education programming. These 10 days incorporate time to schedule parent-teacher conferences, professional development and organizational days. Schools may identify additional non-instructional days, late entries or early dismissals in consultation with their school community and area director, and in alignment with Alberta Education and Calgary Board of Education requirements for instruction. For more information about a specific school instructional calendar, please check the school web site or call the school office. CBE school websites may be found through this link. If you have questions about what professional learning activities for staff take place at your school, please call the school office.
